Wasn't pretty. Just woke up and ran, didnt have much time to limber up and I definitely felt it as I was sluggish and slow. O well, today was designed to be that way. will get in an easy 2 tomorrow for a pre race.

Went in to DSM today to run the Flower Power 5k, a local race that has grown enormously in its 3 years of existence. I actually won the inaugural race in 2008, so I figured I'd give it another shot. Got there and there was a ton of people, prolly between 250-300. About 15 min before the race the skies opened up and it downpoured with lightning and wind. That kept up for over an hour and they eventually cancelled the race due to lightning. Sucks cuz its the first race I've had cancelled on me and I put a lot of training in hoping to run well today, not to mention losing the 15 dollar entry fee...on second thought I did get a pretty sweet moisture wicking shirt, so i guess its ok. Really tho, the race directors probably made the right call for safety so it is what it is. 

All that being said, two other guys and easily the fastest girl there and I decided to run it anyways so we did an improptu 5k on the course. One of the guys parents actually led the way in their car. We ended up only averaging around 6:40s, not very hard at all, but that was Angie's pace so we didnt want to leave her behind. Actually it was a pretty cool thing and I'm glad we did it, I made a few friends out of it too.

After we disbanded after the improptu 5k, I decided I needed more running and went for another 2 - 2.25 miles on the trail To end the day at over 7 miles. I will hit it hard next week as I train for a fast 5k next weekend.

PM- Got home from work and still wasnt satisfied with today's cancelled 5k so I went out and did 3 more miles, except I pounded the first 1.5 cold turkey. Hit 5:37 for the first mile and 2:47 for the remaining half. Total for the 1.5--8:24. Cooled down the last 1.5. I like doing this cold turkey time trial type thing once in a while just to push myself. Ended with decent mileage today.
