More Track

A bit more even this week. The sun drained me tonight and I had this aura of negativity. No clue what's up with that so I am just happy I was able to squeeze out negative splits and that everything was under 6:20 pace. I am debating racing 5k on Sunday. Perhaps it's time to see if I can break my PR? I would have to run about 6:25 pace. I am guessing 6:55 pace is a bit more practical at this point.

Them some speedy splits! Sounds like you had fun in the 'Nati, my old stompin' ground! :) So jealous you got to meet Rae! How cool.

One of the things about running is how little things can throw you off. Maybe it's the temp, maybe you didn't fuel right, or get enough sleep, or you are too stressed, or your sock is on crooked, or your shorts are riding up, or...or..or. Sometimes it's just a bad day and we don't know why! You might just be tired from your big weekend. You still look awfully fast to me!

Nice workout!

Yeah, I get those negative feelings from time to time and when I do, I am just happy to get through my workout.

Great pics - expecially the one of you, Rae and Brent.

I know all about the auras of negativity... they pass.

There's been an aura of negativity around everything I and the people around me have been doing this week. It might just be the moon...

Way to rip up the track! That's good solid speed work E. Be pleased with that. If you decide on the 5 K...go big. You'll do well.

I feel ya on the "aura of negativity"...I used to think I was just psycho...but I'm almost about to start thinking it's normal from time to time.

Regardless...that's a great track workout!!!

Hey guys/gals I get the blessed privilege of running with Liz on the track and I can say she is one tough runner! And she was having fun! See you next Tuesday.

nice track marks! you're doing better on your kind of splits than mine. how do you recommend doing this if you don't have access to a marked track?

Nice splits. 5k's are brutal.

Great track workout! After the marathon, I really want to start working on my speed. And great picks of Bear Run, BTW!
