Daily Note

This one is a bummer. 2 warm up, everything felt good.

Splits: 5:08, 5:08, 5:19, 37.

Felt good through a mile. Felt good through two. Then I got kinda fucked. Was leading a pack til about 800 and then everyone blew by me. That kinda pissed me off- I took the lead of the pack at 2k and everyone say on me for the next 2+k until kicking past me. We all woulda run faster if someone else had taken it/split up leading duties. No excuses though for mentally getting out of it.

The hardest part about this is that I know I am in much better shape than I ran. Only hit 1 second faster than hamline in much better conditions with better workouts under my belt and a small taper. I basically just got in my head. I was too focused on the watch and wasn't actually racing, cost me a faster time. Really upset with that. Really sucks because I'm not gonna run another 5k this season unless it's conference.

Now I'm not really sure where to go from here. A 16:14 will have an outside shot at the conference 5k. Going to run the 1500 at meet of saints and see what happens. Pretty bummed about this season starting to look back. I really just didn't race to the kind of shape I was in or my potential. Very disappointing.
