Scaling it back this week for 2 reasons. The first is that I have a 10 mile race scheduled for saturday; the 2nd is that I have been having some foot problems in the plantar fascia region. Iced it all weekend though and am taking ibuprofen. Felt decent today. Hopefully it wont effect me to the point where I have to cancel the race. 

Beautiful outside today, saw 75 degrees on a neon sign downtown. Sposed to be mid 80s on wednesday...crazy stuff for march in the midwest! Splits today:

1- 7:04.5

2- 7:27.3

3- 7:23.3

4- 7:17.6

last .5- 3:27.4 (6:55 pace)

3 mile tempo today, was hoping to hit around 18:10, ended up faster than that. my foot actually felt pretty good in the flats, which was surprising--however the rest of me felt a little sluggish, so its ice bath time! Splits:

1- 5:56.3

2- 6:11.4 (30 mph headwind on this mile)

3- 5:56.0

Easy 3 today. Ran it in 22:30, exactly 7:30 avg pace. Tomorrow will be a LR of 17 miles or at least that is my goal. I havent had a good week of workouts so I dont feel like wasting 30 bucks on a 10 mile race when my real goal is the marathon in a month and two weeks. Thinking this is the best course of action.
