Ran the 5k today in the Sioux Falls Half Marathon. Got 4th out of around 500 people. Kinda sucked cuz I just missed the money! lol (top 3 got cash payouts). Oh well, I ran well and I was happy with it, if I wouldnt have got all alone late in the race, i coulda pushed it and broke 17. 5:25 first mile, that was the only split they had though. Overall, a good day--A season best of 2009!

Wow, so definitely was planning on like 5 miles today, turned into 11. I felt really good out there and just kept humming along, before I knew it, I had run 11 miles in 1:20:45 or roughly 7:20 per mile. Definitely shouldnt have run in my old shoes today, but they didnt perform too badly.

3x1600 today, followed by an 800 at the end. Tried consciously to keep it around 6:00 per mile because that is the pace I am shooting for this weekend. Ended up running 5:42, 5:57, and 6:02. I feel like I dialed it in better the last two, the first was too fast for the sake of this workout. The last 800 was in 2:58. Overall a decent workout, but my legs are tired and it was humid. Taking it easy the rest of the week til the race on saturday.

Mini-Taper for this weekends 15k. 4 miles today at 7:14 per mile, ended at 28:56. Pretty hot and humid, but the 4 miles felt really easy, wasnt really breathing hard, which is a good sign.

Where to start on this one...I lead the race through 8 miles, should have won it, but faded in the last mile and the two guys who had been about 10-20 yards behind me the whole race threw in a surge to beat me. I technically got 3rd, but the winner was a masters and took the masters title, so that made me 2nd overall. Kind of frustrating to start so well and end not so well, still happy with the time, i was sitting pretty through 6 miles (around 36:20). I maintained even 6's through 4. Ended at 58:04 or somewhere thereabouts, so there is a definite drop off. The race was for a great cause though (cancer fundraiser) and so that is the important thing. I did get a really nice plaque made out of a tree and some gift certificates to restaurants in sioux city, so overall not a bad day, just really thought I was gonna win this one. O well, go hawks!
