3rd group run for this long weekend, so after the hilly trail run wasn't quite sure what the body was going to do today and what pace I was going to be able to keep. The last 2 runs started at 9am which was a treat so getting up to the 7am start today was hard, got up with no issue except for a slight tightness on left calf which quickly worked itself out. Got dresses had 2 slices of bread with Nutella and mixed up a bottle of Accelerate (this is what I have been using all weekend and it had worked out great with minimal soreness).
Got to the running store late at 7:02am but they were running late since we didn't start until 7:15, got my #, the intention is to drop apiece of paper with your number on it for a drawing at the end of the race for each loop you do (didn't win any thing).
Wasn't sure what pace I wasn't going to go but knew I wanted to do at least 5 loops, started out the first loop in the 9:30 pace and felt fine so decided to see if I could hold the pace for all 5 loops. At the end of loop 5 was still feeling great and had time to do 1 more so went for it. Great run glad I got up to do since it was also nice a lot of runners I haven't seen in a while. Got a chance to test out a Brooks running vest, very nice and comfortable.
Got back home and did 52mins of strength training using Kelly Coffer Meyer's workout DVD.
