Back in Germany today finally, long evening of train rides yesterday as we traversed from Geneva back to Freiburg. Got some good rest last night and decided to get out and get some race pace work for this weekend as is typical for me 4 days out from a big race. 3 miles at GHMP. I was absolutely amazed at how good it felt, i tried to hold 6:00 pace but ended up way faster, just felt too easy to run quickly. My splits were as follows for the tempo portion:

1- 5:49.2

2- 5:56.8

3- 5:52.0

TOTAL-- 17:38, 5:53 avg pace

warmup was 3, cooldown was 1.5, total was 7.5. I really am shocked at how easy I perceived the pace to be, i was sure I was 6:00-6:10 and I was just takin it easy...definitely a good sign and hopefully this weekend's half will be a good one. My new goal for the race is sub 6:00 avg pace, so right near 1:18:30. We'll see how it goes, that is 3:43 per K pace. I'll try to get some pictures up from the weekend as per Jake K's request!
