We got in kind of late last night and had family stuff going on. I headed out late in the pitch dark of a city I'm not familiar with. Methodically picked my way through the neighborhoods and roads. I'll get lost so fast it will make your head spin.. I made it back in one piece after 8 miles.
This morning I headed out to Oak Mountain State Park and logged 14 miles. HR averaged 148 and I was clicking along a solid effort and pace. I am racing 5k tomorrow morning. My last 5k at sea level was in 1997. Last years winning time was 14:48 so I should have someone to pull me through to a hard effort. I doubt very much that I can break 16:00 tomorrow as I am training to race the marathon.. but we'll see.
Thanks for the good word brfoot and Lee. I'll give it a go in the morning!
