was planning on a half this weekend, but it was just too pricy, so I decided to join the Rocky Mountain Road Runners for their Marathon Training Series races/training runs. They had a 10 and 20 M option, I took the 10 and was hoping for better than 1:01. A little cool at the start, but no wind helped and it warmed up quickly. This race was a good test for Boston (from everything pre-race prep standpoint). My watch didn't save my splits (of course), but I know we started at 6:12, then dropped into the 6:00-6:03 range with a 5:57 mixed in during the first 5 miles. Came through 5 miles in around 30:10 roughly, lost some steam around mile 6, but rebounded and made a strong mental finish more than anything (although after a slow mile 6 and 7, I also hit faster miles again, with the last one probably near 6:05 or better. Finished just under 1:01, not exactly sure how much, my watch had 10.01 in 1:00:57 but it beeped a little ahead of the line. Whatever the time, very happy with this effort as I achieved my goal, improved my 10 mile time from 3 weeks ago by a minute and a half and generally felt really strong, especially after the rough spell passed mid-race. Considering the elevation, I'm excited about what this effort says about my fitness level right now. 3.7 cooldown and roughly 1.8 prerace for a 15.5 total day

long training run tonight, 19.3 in 7:14 avg pace, snowed the entire time but wasn't really accumlating, made the decision to wear shorts even tho it was cold, decided if this was boston thats what I would wear, negative split the run, my fastest miles were 10-17, slowed it down before and after, + strides after, longest single training run i've ever done
