Medium recovery today with Mario. We tried to figure out a good course for our orchestra's 5k fundraiser, but it was a little difficult. Legs felt a little tired for the first couple of miles, but then they felt good for the rest. Appr pace about 8:15 or so. After did abs and hips.

Easy mile wu and then a speed workout on the track, which tbh was super fun bc we haven't done one of those in so so long! It was 1000m at 5k race pace and then a 200m jog, then a 200m sprint, then 3:30 min of rest - six sets of that. My splits for the 1000s were: 3:58, 4:02, 3:58, 3:57, 3:56, my last one was a 3:39 :) All of our times were on pace and my legs felt super good and strong so overall the workout was a big win. Missed my buddies Gan and Guppy tho... hope they had a fun time at USU. After I did about half a mile on the grass to finish up then abs and hips and ya, know... a few pushups ;)

So this was sort of a frustrating race. First (after a mile wu), we had the weirdest start ever. Like, NO ONE was ready and then all of a sudden the gun goes off. Like what even? Also the bib situation was a little rough haha. Also my legs felt so tired from the past few days so I was a little worried about this race. Anyway. First mile was fast due to mucho downhill. It was a 5:49. Second mile dropped WAY down and looking back I was kind of a baby as far as mental game goes. It was like a 6:30. I should have surged on more of those little hills in the middle because after almost every single one there was a downhill to match. Last 0.88 was like a 5:40, but should have been a lot faster because I was a little confused about the course. I thought the last hill was going to be way longer than it was and also a lot farther from the end so I was trying to pace myself but I should have gone a lot faster than I did. Also I thought we had to loop around like the whole field, but we didn't -_-. But I guess it could have gone a lot worse. I ended up 32 which is definitely not what I wanted (I wanted like top 20-25). Not trying to make excuses but I think if my legs had felt a little better and I had known the course I could have done so much better and got a lot better place. Also team got 6th I think which was pretty disappointing, but I know everyone was a little tired to start out with. (got in a little bit of "anger mileage" as well) We'll get em next time tho. Afterward did about 5 more miles with Gan and a few of the boys which was fun.
