Long run outside.  had a grand plan to run a 50k PR when I set out from the house this morning.  Feeling decent energy level and a little stiff in the legs.  Turned in to an 8 mile AT, a few bathroom break stops, and then a slog back home.  Best part of run was pulling together some pick ups at the end of the run.  19 miles total - 2:26:53

AM - Series 10k race in Seymour.  Its amazing how similar the races are each year.  I was lonely in 3rd and was keeping Tim in sight for most of the race.  decent result considering little specific faster training.  slower mile slipt at mile 5 - 6:09.  Struggled aerobically after 4.5 miles, and could tell the difference in fitness specific to 10k/5k versus the long slowness I have been training for.  Faster for shorter is the mantra right now.  Maybe another 100M attempt in the summer
