No Mile Splits?!

Last December, my Garmin Forerunner 305 decided to die. The amazing folks at Garmin helped me to realize that it was still under warranty and sent me a new one. Everything has been great. Until I realized today that I never set it to AUTOLAP every mile and now I have no mile splits from my freaking 31 mile race.

I thought it was weird when I could hear everyone else's Garmin making noise except for mine, but I thought the sound was just off.

I was at first pretty sad to find out that I ran all of that way and don't know my mile splits, but then I remembered that until last year, I didn't own a Garmin and never had any idea of how fast I ran each mile. However, I do have my sick ass race print out from each of my Caumsett runs.

Here are my 5K splits. The first four splits I ran with music. My phone died during split 5 because I was listening to Soundcloud and Spotify - rookie mistake. Next time I will turn my phone to airplane mode and make sure that I download everything I want to listen to. I also might bring my old school iPod as a back up.

I also think I was dehydrated from going out Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, and that I didn't drink enough water on Friday. I overcompensated Saturday and had to pee every freaking 3 miles, adding to my time.

I also walked the hills during splits 5 - 10. I think I will walk the hills during every loop in the future because it will save energy. As you can see in split 10, walking the hills didn't negatively affect my overall time and I was actually able to run the entire thing faster than splits 2 and 3, even though I didn't walk at all during those.

One of my favorite things about running is analyzing data because I am a data nerd.
