5k in 15:18 at UVU. I got a good start and today for the most part I felt really good about my mental game. I just hopped In the back of the front group and turned my mind off. The first half went by pretty fast too so I was feeling good. Jared created a gap between him and the front pack and with 4 laps to go I was still feeling good and decided to try to separate myself from the pack and catch up to him.  I separated from the pack but I couldn't close the gap all the way to Jared and got stuck by myself in between the two groups. With two laps to go I really started to feel it and got passed by a few. Looking back I should have waited longer to make a move, or just fully committed to get up to Jared and work with him. My mental game is getting a lot better but I felt it was pretty tough once I was by myself so I need to be smarter with those kinds of decisions. Splits were 4:40, 4:53, 5:05 I think. Was hoping to at least break 15 but I think I'm definitely in shape for that (without a conversion), I just need to run it smarter.
