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
