Today, I'll be traveling out to the Olympic speedskating oval for a track workout since our track here at Alta is covered with snow...

2 mile warm-up

10 X 400. Averaged 81-83 seconds for the first 9. Ran the 10th in 75. Made me smile.

2 mile cool down

9 miles on the Porter Rockwell Trail with Ian. Felt achy. Not the best run.

AM: 1 mile jog around the block. Race at 10 am...

RACE: Mixed bag today. I really thought I could average under 5:50/mile and dip under 18. I'll have to figure out whether it was mental or physical. My splits were 5:45, 6:01, 6:01, :37. Overall, I give myself a B-

It was my fastest time in this race since 2014. I have this goal of trying to break 29 minutes for 8k next Saturday in a cross country race at sea level. I think I'm close to being able to do that and I'm hoping today's tune-up 5k will help.
