The day off yesterday did me some good. AM Crossroads series 5k. Mill Race Park is about 4 miles from the house, so I jogged over at a relaxed pace from the house. Did some strides and pickups at the park and ran the race, not expecting much, since I have notorioulsy run bad at this race at this time of year. Kept it about 6:00 pace - which was difficult effort in the last mile. I think I'm much improved overlast year, yet realize that I'm still in between that phase where I'm in recovery from spring races, and the switching gears to shorter/faster phase that usually happens to me this time of year. Splits for 5k were 6:02, 5:59, 6:05, and 0:28 for a GPSed 3.07 mi. Lots of twists and turns and one fairly steep climb for about 0.1mi. Pleased with this time on this course - I ran about 19:00 last year. About 7 mi. total for the morning.
PM: easy hour out and back from house down CR 300. 7.15 mi. - 59:33
