AM: 10 miles. sugarhouse loop.
PM: outside the ice 5k at the olympic oval.
in theory, this should have been a fast race for me, possibly even a new PR. the race was held in a climate controlled building on a springy indoor track with the company of james as my pacing friend.
in reality, the race was pretty much a flop. i just didn't have it in my legs tonight. i was already off pace after the first lap, and i felt like i was "locked in" and couldn't get myself to go any faster. eehhhh. i guess i'll chalk it up as a good workout and try again in two weeks. this upcoming marathon could be a disaster...
i really enjoyed running on the track, although i do need to get better at properly pacing myself. it was definitely a different experience than a 5k out on the roads.
james is running part II of this race in the morning -- the half marathon. i'm going to ice skate around him as i yell out motivating quotes and throw water in his face.
