Salt Lake City Track Club Winter Series 15K

1:11:45  This is a very bad time for me.  I've been sick all week.  Based on my other race times in this series I should have been around 1:05 - 1:06.  I did not run all week except for 5 miles yesterday and I knew this was not going to go well but I gave it a shot anyway.  

My plan was to go out at my goal pace, which was 7:04.  I was on track for the first two miles but then the third mile was 7:25 and fourth 7:35.  At this point I figured if I can't get back to the 7:05 range I'd start shutting it down.  Fifth mile 7:34, not getting any faster but I figured I'd still stay with it, four more miles in the low 7's and I can still pull out something respectable.  Sixth mile 7:34 again.  I've never quit on a race so I was feeling a little lost right now.  I'm trying to keep a positive attitude considering I was flat on my back in bed sick just a few days ago.  Seventh mile 7:47, I'm shutting down whether I want to or not.  Eight mile 8:20, I guess now i'm "cooling down".  Mile nine 8:38.  Finish line approaches and I'm doing what I can to put this race behind me.

 I'm not filing this as a race report, there is nothing of value here for me or anyone else.
