PM 2 mile warm-up, then 5 x 400 with about 1:15 to 1:30 rests in-between.  Splits: 86, 90, 82, 81, 85.  Cooled down for a bit.  

Running the Provo City Half this week.  Not expecting much, but expecting to get a good workout in.

Pleasantly surprised with my race today based on my last few weeks of running.  My expectations were low, but I had a really good race and enjoyed things quite a bit today.  Race started about 1.5 miles up South Fork and pretty much just came out of the canyon and down University.  

1 6:17

2 6:17  12:36  I was actually very conservative on these first 2 miles which have a lot of downhill.

3 6:32  19:09  Stopped and walked for a second through the aid station.  Did this at every one of them.

4 6:16  25:26

5 6:13  31:39

6 6:17  37:57  Just cruised along for the last few miles.  Lots of marathoners on the course cause they started about 15 min ahead of us.  It was fun to have people to catch.

7 6:29  44:26

8 6:27  50:53

9 6:45  57:39  I had Melanie B. and her friends in sight the whole race.  Finally caught Melanie and ran a bit with her for the next mile or so.

10 6:33  1:04:12

11 6:49  1:11:02  This mile had the uphill by the golf course.  Ran it really well and just tried to stay relaxed going up it.

12 6:31  1:17:34

13 6:31  1:24:05  This mile dragged on a bit, and there was a guy who finished about 5 seconds ahead of me.

.10 0:37  1:24:42 

Overall, a great race for me and something to build off of going forward.  One day, one day the sub 1:20 is going to come for me.  I'm obviously not in good enough shape for it right now, but maybe by the end of the summer.  Hopefully the damage is minimal from this race.
