5 in 37:23, 7:31 avg. Felt horrible, my hamstrings were so tight that they were starting to hurt towards the end of the run. Just had no energy. not a great way to start off a race-week with 3 bad workouts. Gonna ice bath today.

Ran the March for Malawi 5k today. I was signed up for a 10 miler in lincoln, nebraska, but the forecast of snow scared me away. i didnt want to travel 3 and a half hours to get in trouble in the snow, so i just ran the local 5k. It was bitterly cold cuz the east wind was blowing, it was 28 but wc was like 15. Ended up at 18:29, there were no mile splits, but they couldnt have been great. I did get better as the race went on. They had the kilometers roughly marked and i did run faster the last 3. I even caught the 3rd place guy in the last K. He made the mistake of looking back at me which I know is the kiss of death. After that, i picked it up and passed him with about 400 to go. not super happy with the time, but it was a good effort given the conditions.
