Been wanting to run this race in years past and finally got a chance today. However, i have never toed the line feeling more dead and sore than i did today because today was right after a 60 mile week, my first ever at that mileage. Thus, my legs were tired, but i wanted to run nonetheless so tired legs aside i figured itd be good speedwork as long as i didnt aggravate any of my sore spots into worse injuries. Got out easy and was surprised at the first split-- 5:40, was thinking id be around 5:25-5:30, but just had no pop in the legs. next split was 5:58, final was 5:53, with a :29 second sprint kick to come in just above 18 minutes and 5:49 pace. Overall, i was actually very happy with how this one turned out. given how i felt yesterday and before the race, i figured id be lucky to get through it uninjured, but i managed a decent pace and even had a nice kick uphill at the end. Not my best 5k by any means, but i knew that it wouldnt be going in and im okay with that. My goal race is in 2 weeks and that is where all the mileage will pay off. In other news, they gave cash payouts to the top 3 and my 18:01 was good enough to net me 20 bux cash! Not much, but pretty much broke even on the race entry! also side note, weather was amazing!

after a much needed day off, i got back at it today, 8 in 57:xx..something. felt very tired, prolly from the caffeine addiction that i am no longer partaking in. stopping caffeine for the 2 weeks before the half mary is tough but its a good idea in the long run.

14 miler tonight, felt okay, not super great though which came as a surprise. tried to go 6 miles relatively easy then drop it into GHMP (6:00-6:10) but had big time trouble maintaining that pace late. a little concerned, but not too much, it happens sometimes. Weather was actually a lil warm, never thought id go shirtless on an evening run in iowa in october. 80 degrees at the start of this one, 78 at finish, after sunset. splits:

1- 6:39.9

2- 6:54.1

3- 7:02.2

7.5 after work tonight, hit the first 2 in 6:50 and 6:51 respectively, the rest were consistently slower as i consciously slowed my pace. Total time was 53:42, 7:10 avg pace, anchored by a 7:44 uphill final mile that was rough. Still very warm out for this late in the year.
