Repeat miles today. Wasn't a great workout. 5:28 first, 5:58 second, stomach turmoil, then the last two 800s were combined 5:44 (2:47 & 2:57). Stomach was just not cooperating today.

Wanted to go 8 today, but kind of pooped out. Didnt end up running this weekend. Will try to get back on top of things this week as my summer job is gearing up and leaving me with no time to run.

makeshift tempo in todays run. was just gonna be 5 easy, turned into a tempo, hit the middle 2 miles in 6:05's each. The last one was actually a negative split from the 800. Really busy with work but my next 5k will prolly be carlisle on the 27th.

Felt very good today. First mile was around 6:40 which is the high end of "marathon pace" for me. Ended up just over 7's for the run and i was happy with how fresh i was after a tough weekend.

Im not sure what was easy about today's mileage. The humidity was so high that when i got done it was like i fell in a pool. Very tough mentally to fight through the heat and humidity. Probably gonna storm tonight.

mile repeats again today, really trying to hammer out some good intervals to get myself ready for carlisle next weekend. First mile was 5:31 followed by 5:40. The last one i split into two 800s, one in 2:49 one in 2:44. Overall, a decent workout on tired legs.

Race: Carlisle 4th of July 5k (3.1 Miles) 00:17:31, Place overall: 1, Place in age division: 1

I won the Carlisle 5k today for the second year. I was really happy with how the race went and it wasnt easy. Another guy gave me a good race and I didnt pass him until around 2 miles in. I didnt think I'd ever get him but I did and I feel I got tough in the middle of the race to make that move. 17:31 is about a minute off what I ran at Carlisle last year, but I was still happy with it given the heat and humidity plus coming off the knee problems. I think I won today because of a good second mile. My splits were roughly 5:44, 5:23, and 5:43, with about a 41 second final 200. I think that the 2nd mile is short and it is definitely downhill, but I still opened it up during that mile.

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.
