Jumped into a 5K for fun this weekend. The goal was to pick off runners towards the end. Splits were 5:51, 5:50, 5:40. I had more to give but the goal was to train through this race and finish feeling pleasantly tired.

Smoove, I ran into someone you might know at the race Lol. Small world. Her name is Anja Drew. She is from Orlando and mentioned Track Shack. I was surprised to hear that she isn’t being coached and doesn’t seem to believe that she can qualify for the marathon Olympic Trials! She ran 18:02, went out a bit fast but looked strong.

The discussions from last week were very interesting. I didn’t have much to add except to say now that Lydiard seems very appealing given my style of training.

I tend to prefer frequent racing as opposed to killing myself in workouts!

Coach Jeff I pulled out a new set of shoes today also...Nike Structure...pace was automatically 10s/mile faster lol

Happy running to all!
