Daily Note

7:15 am. I have executed a 10K correctly twice in my life. The first time was 10 years ago when I ran 30:40. The 2nd was today. 1.5mi shakeout this morning and then 3 easy before the race plus a few strides. My only goal today was to finish with no stitching. Immediately 2 separated early and a pack of 6 formed a few seconds behind them. I trailed in 9th keeping things easy. Probably wasted energy running so far out of the pack but I wanted to run my own race for the first half. Coming into 5K i found myself back in the pack, they had slowed and I moved into 5th pretty easily before binding my time again for the next 1.5mi. Hit the gas again and moved into 3rd without any trouble and maintained to the finish. Fastest 10K in a really long time. Maybe 5 years? Glad to have this monkey off my back.
