Total Distance

Warmed up around 2.5 miles with Riley, Ben, and Tom. Things felt pretty good. Once the gun went off I found myself in no mans land pretty quickly, which I didn't really want, but ended up being the reality for the whole race. My quads didn't feel like they had the pop or the strength I wanted today, especially on the uphills. The first 5k had a lot more uphill than I was ready for, which slowed be down pretty good. I was high 17:30s to 17:40 through 5k, and then ended up feeling decent once the downhill came back. My legs did start to fail me at the end though. I did 2.7 miles of cooldown with Trace, and I honestly didn't feel too bad once I got going.

Did an easy 3.7 miles in the evening to shake out the legs at 6:50 pace. Calves were a little tight at first, but the legs weren't too bad considering
