AM: 3.2 WU 5k race 1 CD 

I am out in Sacramento to watch Jenn run the marathon tomorrow. This year CIM had a 5k the day before so I figured I might as well run it. Very slow and slippery course but I won, so that's a good way to end my season.

Seriously, who designed this monstrosity of a course? 23 turns. The guy in the lead about a half mile in wipes out on the first turn which involved wet leaves and mud. Of course then I had to slow down at each turns so I wouldn’t wipe out. Fun but terrible course

Watched CIM and was support crew for Jenn. I felt bad for her since she had some issues and didn't reach her goal. However, she PRed and made it through. She's tough. I was pumped with the good results from runners from the DC area and it has made me look forward to the marathon in Berlin next year.

PM: 3 miles home from metro + light core

My legs felt fine but my stomach did not. Also, my core is weak AF after neglecting any core work for over a week. Forcing myself to keep my runs short at least for a week.

AM: 3 miles

PM: 3 miles + kettlebell routine

Stomach doesn't feel good on the run due to my diet. My belt at work is getting snug. Almost ready to ramp the running back up but forcing myself to make sure the body gets a break.

nothing today. I had some Wendys and other garbage. Time to phase this lazy eating diet out and get back on track.

PM: 5.7 miles 

cold, 27 with wind chill of 23. Not really that bas though. Totally a comfortable run with the right clothes. I wonder how cruddy it will be in single digits with 20-30 mph winds. Hopefully it doesn't get that cold this winter.
