PM: really sore and tired from yesterday.  A CR Series 5k in Mill Race Park at 3pm was the only way I was going to get in the miles I wanted today.  So, at 2pm, off I went in the heat and on some very sore legs.  3.8 miles to the park at about 9:30 pace - its 90 degrees.  Hung around a bit and then signed up and lined up with the 300+ Girls on the Run and Thouroughbreds (8-12 year olds) that sometimes double their events with the CR Series.  The starts are funny to say the least :)  I was in 50th place after 200m... Anyway, this was going to be a jog if my legs didn't loosen up at some point anyway.  It was until about 1mile in to the race.  Loosened up and got down in to the 5:30 range by the last quarter mile or so.  Doused myself with water and grabbed a banana, chatted with some guys, and then shuffled home the long way to get the rest of the miles - 6 miles at like 9:30-10:00 pace.

12.8 miles total - should give me the first 100 mile week (Mon. - Sun.) of the year.

Tuesday Track workout.  85 degrees and sunny.  Alot of people there again today.  Makes it fun.  Workout was 5x400(40sec), 4min., 4x400(40sec), 4min., 3x400(40sec) with 400 at goal 5k pace.  Danny and I did these in about 80 for the first 9 and then 75, 75, 74 for last 3.  I think we did it about right - last 2 reps were tough, but manageable and controlled. 

5.31 mi. total - 42min.

PM - 4mi. easy x 2.  Sore, but not as tired legs.  Think these Adrenalines are about done.  Feeling more road than usual.  Interesting weather - 80 degrees for 4pm jog, and then 65 degrees for 8:30pm run.  Storm blowing in looked like.

8mi. total - 66 min.

The day off yesterday did me some good.  AM Crossroads series 5k.  Mill Race Park is about 4 miles from the house, so I jogged over at a relaxed pace from the house.  Did some strides and pickups at the park and ran the race, not expecting much, since I have notorioulsy run bad at this race at this time of year.  Kept it about 6:00 pace - which was difficult effort in the last mile.  I think I'm much improved overlast year, yet realize that I'm still in between that phase where I'm in recovery from spring races, and the switching gears to shorter/faster phase that usually happens to me this time of year.  Splits for 5k were 6:02, 5:59, 6:05, and 0:28 for a GPSed 3.07 mi.  Lots of twists and turns and one fairly steep climb for about 0.1mi.  Pleased with this time on this course - I ran about 19:00 last year.  About 7 mi. total for the morning.

PM: easy hour out and back from house down CR 300.  7.15 mi. - 59:33
