18 miles. extended millcreek loop. 7:22 average pace. 6:57, 6:54, 6:41 for the last three. doing my long run today was certainly not ideal. but life comes first, and life will be downright crazy the rest of this week. so i had to adapt. it's front-loading at its finest.

it was a perfect day to be out. plenty of sunshine and 60 degrees. we seem to be experiencing some weather retrogradation, but i am not complaining. the best part about this run was that my stomach cooperated. i think i have finally found the right foods and the right amounts to eat before an afternoon run. felt great the whole time.

8 miles. slow. sunnyside up loop. i am stressed about work, so it was great to get out this morning and run my frustrations away.

i am staying motivated by thinking of the overtime pay accumulating in my "trip to europe" fund. when that will actually happen, i know not. but it's fun to think about.

squatters chasing tail 5K at wheeler farm. i wasn't in much of a racing mood this morning -- at all. but that all changed while warming up. the course was great. two loops around the farm on a dirt/packed mud path covered in fall leaves. very xc-ish. the course was mostly flat with just a few turns. well marked. accurate. good, good and good. 

i started out fast and then settled into a nice, uncomfortable 5K pace. i didn't time this race and i never once looked at my watch (it's true, bonnie!) however, there was a lady standing at the 1-mile mark yelling out splits (she was really good at it). 5:57 at the mile.

the race became a bit more interesting in the second loop -- the runners started lapping the dog walkers. and believe me, there were PLENTY of dog walkers at this race (it was a fundraiser for therapy dogs). it really wasn't too bad. i had to do a few weaving maneuvers, but nothing significant enough to slow me down. it was actually kind of fun to run through the obstacles, ready to hurdle a dog at any moment. split lady clocked me at 14:33 in the second loop (around 2.4 miles).

the last 800m of the race were pretty painful, but not nearly as bad or uncontrolled as i felt in layton last month. i finished in 18:32. still nowhere near that sub-18 mark, but i do realize it's going to take a different training approach to achieve that. working on it...

after the race i ran a long cool down with james. a great start to another beautiful-weathered day.
