5k Race in Seymour.  Quick WU - 1mi. +a couple pickups.  Paid the price in the race for lack of WU and recent poor training.  Unrecognized effort levels and uneven splits - Typical result for an undisciplined, undertrtained runner (That's me)  I ate way to close to the race and went out at an unrealistic pace for current specific fitness level. 

Splits:  5:39, 5:51, 6:13, and a similar similar pace on partial.  PAthetic - 18:41 for 3rd place and getting passed by a guy I should beat in the last hald mile.  

On a side note, I am not going to the 100 mile race.  I am scraping the idea and running 100miles altogether.

Trail running with a group in Brown County.  All trails and getting dropped by these much faster guys.  They are all another level.  Good trails to run on, but, I am thinking that I am over trails and running long all together.  Deciding today to refocus efforts on short stuff and scrap the Ultra thing altogether. 13 mi. - about 2 hours.

Series 5 k Race as part of local festival.  Strong tailwind out and strong headwind on the back part.  Man, I am in some pretty bad shape.  I am not even a shadow of my former self, preceding all the ultra training the past couple years. 

5:53, 6:03, 6:24 and under 6min. pace for partial

Switching back to non-ultra.  I am finding it more enjoyable and manageable to consistently run 60-90 minutes per day, and run faster at shorter stuff.  Current goal is to take some down time and rekindle the fire to get back in to some harder training.
