In-person, live 5k today in Fort Collins. Awesome to get another in person race done. Wave starts with social distancing. Was in the 8:45 am wave with my brother Jon. Already getting warm at the start, but seemed like a nice morning for a race. I was breaking in my new Vaporflys as well. I will only be using them for marathons (maybe a half) going forward, but I needed to break them in before my first marathon with them, so I figured today was as good as any. They didn't dissapoint - they felt amazing. I don't know how these things are legal haha.

Splits: 5:43, 5:52, 5:39, 33 = 17:49. 5:45 avg

This is a marked improvement over where I was a month ago, so I was very happy with the race. The overall time was good in terms of what I've been able to do at Colorado's altitude, bit the real win was the splits - Kept it steady and had a good push at the end.

10 miles total today with w/u and c/d

did work today. 90 degree afternoon, was gonna go on the treadmill, but a storm started moving in so I thought I'd go outside and get rained on, it sprinkled some, never really poured on me, but cooled off into the upper 70s low 80s, which was warm but cloudy so felt better, still a challenge to get 16.5 but I did it! 1:59:17, 7:14 avg pace + strides

humid as can be, stormed like crazy afterwards, trees down all over the place, would have been nice to run after the storm since the humidity is gone, but path would have been strewn with branches, 7.2 miles in 7:3X pace

Progression run on the treadmill because of the forest fire smoke. 1 mile warmup, then 7:08, 6:58, 6:49, 6:39, 6:30, 6:22, 6:15, 6:07, then one cooldown, 52:48 for the 8 miles of progression, 6:36 avg pace, really felt it the last 2 miles, but overall a good effort-based workout for my first day back at altitude
