Muddy out in some spots but the rain held off for the most part which was nice. Last 5: 5:48,5:38,5:35,5:33,5:30. It actually felt pretty easy to go that pace even with the muddy path. I am feeling really strong so far this cycle.

One less mile today as I am backing down and resting up a bit for a few days before Saturday's "race." It will be 20 degrees Saturday morning on a hilly 10K course but I feel like it will be an important part of learning to race before the real races in March and April. I also need a bit of a down week to absorb and last month of training, which has gone very well.

recovery day. It was 40 this morning and the high today is 53. Guess what the temp will be for the race the day after tomorrow?  16 degrees. I shit you not. Even colder than New Year's. This wishy washy weather grinds my gears. I should know better than to try to race in February. That's almots like racing a 5K in August and complaining because it's a humid 90 degrees. It will be a good workout at least. Just another step toward my real goals in March and April.

Not an easy course due to the constant rolling hills and it was cold: about 17 degrees at race start. Luckily it was not that windy. took it easy first two miles and began to accelerate after that. I wanted to break 33:00 knowing that times from this race have historically been slow even from very fast area runners like Graham and Jerry. I felt very strong and tied Graham's time from last year which bodes well for me in March and April. This race was a great opportunity for specific training for the half marathon and 10 miles races this spring.

PM: 1 hr. Pool run
