Long, slow recovery mileage today. Kept very even pace at 7:20 which felt nice and relaxed. Longest run for me in a while.

First mile I went out like a jet and  hit 6:25-6:35, not quite sure where the 1 mile mark is exactly. Either way, I felt great and ended up averaging 6:55's on the night. Not a bad run.

Repeat miles today. Didnt go well, I was spent. 5:28, 5:50, and two 800s (2:55, 2:51). Overall, a rough day and I just didnt have it as I was tired. Fighting the wind on the last two was hard as well.

5.5 miles today, hit the first two around 6:45 each. Ended at 38:26 or just over 6:59's per mile. Took an ice bath.

I didnt run a great race this morning. I dont think my warmup was very good because the first 400 of the race was very taxing for some reason. I ran a great 2nd mile again, so that is a positive I can take from this race. Still got an award for being top 10 out of 400-500. Need to keep working to get better.
