AM: Went out with Kim early. Temps weren't bad but there was some wind and snow/hail pellets that were kind of painful when they would pelt you in the eyes.

PM: Went to the gym around 3 for 30 min XT + core.

Nice relaxing run in the sun just before lunch. Did some strides the last half of the run.

Great weather today perfect for another downhill 5K time trial. Temps in the low 40's and sunny with very little wind. I vowed to not make the same mistake as the last 2 weeks and go out too fast on the early steep downhill.

Plan was to run mile splits around 6:00, 6:15, and 6:30 to end up just under 19:30 for 5K. I almost forgot the plan and started out mile 1 a bit quick but then I mentally slapped myself upside the head and stuck to the plan, which ended up working out quite nicely and I ended up at 19:23.

Mile splits were 5:57, 6:16, 6:30, :39 (last .10)

I'm pleased with this workout. Maybe since Old Bean recently tweaked his hamstring playing church ball I can give him a little scare at the Leopard 5K!

Another nice long run with the gang. A bit breezy with snow flurries at times but temps in the mid-30's so it wasn't too bad. Nice to be getting some good longer runs in the last few Saturdays.
