8:00 am) low 30's no wind! Nice Day!
Great run today. I ran a nice PR! My PR was from
back in February 56:37. So almost a minute off it.
What makes it more special is that after Thursday's
race I was considering not doing this because I
figured I was not going to run a good time. Sure I
could run it for fun but for me races are meant to
be raced. I'm a very competitive person and I can't
change that nor do I want to.
Before the race I did a mile warm up. I took GZ
advice and ran a hard 1/4 mile to open things
up a bit. I think that helped. Also I ran in racing
flats today and think that helped as well.
My goal was to run 5:55 to 6:05 miles today. I did
a great job on that goal. Only one mile was off a
bit due to me stopping for a drink. Below is my splits.
5/6:09 (water stop)
35.3 miles for the week. Dropped miles this week
with 2 races will pick it back up this week.
