Great weather this morning - 45 degrees, overcast.  Went in with the left knee sore and ready to take whatever happened as a "sign" of things to come.  about a half mile of strides and jogging with some stretching before.

 The hilly portions of this really showed in the splits, especially the second half of this course - it got the hammies and knee really talking to me.  Awfully slow last 5k after a PR for 10 miles.  

6:08, 6:17, 6:46, 6:22, 6:11, 6:23, 6:31, 6:23, 6:20, 6:36, 6:59, 6:43, 6:39, 0:46 - for what watch showed as 0.13 mi.

The overall guys' times kind of reflected the difficulty of this course - I think the winning guy is usually a sub 1:10 guy - he was about 1:14 today.  Opted out of the evening 5k, wisely... My left leg feels awful :(  CR Series 5k tomorrow?  Probably shouldn't...
