recovery day today so a slow 3 on tap. 22:30, or 7:30 pace, but even that felt tough as my legs were tired from yesterdays good 11. Probably speed work tomorrow as i gear up for a decently high mileage week and a 10k next sunday.

Tempo today, ended up at 5 miles in about 6:25 per mile pace. Not what i was shooting for, going for 6 in 6:15 and was on that pace til around 3.5 miles in. Lots of hills doomed my pace, but were a godsend because i have been looking for a good hill workout and i got that today. Very windy. Overall a good day. Home made ice bath after the workout, definitely think it was too cold, but i got a good 12 minute soak in so hopefully my tired legs will bounce back for mileage tomorrow.

Very windy, wet 6.5 miles today. Got rained on just about the whole time. Very hilly run again today which is good for training, even being soaked helped me mentally get tough. Kept 7:09 pace and the legs actually felt pretty good after last night's ice bath. Now i get a little more than 24 hours til my next workout which is a nice extended break. Maybe better weather tomorrow.

Did repeat miles today. Wanted to do 4 of them, but ended up doing 3 (5:49, 5:44, 6:00) and the last one i had to break up into a 600 (2:10), 600 (2:15) and a 400 (1:20) because of intestinal issues. My stomach was just not cooperating and i suffered through that last makeshift mile that i put together. Either way, not a bad workout for windy conditions. Don't quite have the speed i used to have as of now, but my endurance is getting better. 2.5 total warmup and cool down.

Nice easy 5 today at 7:09 pace, still felt a little rushed though actually. Mini-taper today and tomorrow before the 10k on sunday. Looking forward to racing again, feeling ready for a longer race, weather looks pretty good, should be around 40 at the start. Ice bath'd tonight cuz the legs were sore.

Easy pre-race 2 mile tune-up as i always do. Felt a little sluggish, probably just cuz of the early run and the fact that its snowing out. Looking forward to the 10k tomorrow, shooting for sub 36 minutes.
