Had a great workout on the track today. 5k pace for 2x1200m, 2x1000m, 2x800m w/ 1:1 time rests.

I felt smooth and controlled despite a stiff breeze on the homestretch, and ran my reps in

3:36, 3:37, 3:00.8, 2:59.9, 2:23.9, 2:22.

Despite the race this weekend, I'm sure sub-15 is right around the corner.

After postponing my 5k workout to yesterday, I'm holding to the rest of the week's schedule and ran a 6 mile marathon-pace tempo today. It's not a stressful run, so I figured it would be fine to do back-to-back. I headed out to Cali on the Urb and settled into 5:50 pace. Very uneventful, aside from running into the smelliest hippie I have yet to encounter in Bellingham. I could literally smell BO from 100 yards back. It was really something. The dip in the 3rd/4th miles slowed me down as usual, but I upped the tempo slightly on the last two miles and finished in 35:07, right on the nose of what I wanted to do.
