Lunch time - spinning at the gym - 6 mi. in 20 min., 15 min. core/strength after

Track tues. - 4x1k @ 5k pace - Too fast pace on first 2 combined with improper WU.  Tim is about 16:40 5k guy, where I am about 17:30 (with <17 dream pace)  Tried to hang with him - too fast on first 2 and skipped one after the 3rd rep was slow and HR was maxed.   3:23, 1 min. standing, 3:25, 1min., 3:34, Took about 5min., and one more 1k - 3:20.  3:24 = 17 min. 5k.  That doesn't seem unrealistic at some point this summer...  Meanwhile, my left hamstring is very tight and sometimes painful if I sit too long, though it does not hurt when warm or running fast.

6.1mi. total - 43:45 moving time.  Marathon on Saturday -- looking like 2:55 as realistic goal.  6:40 pace

Off - better play it a little safe with all the big efforts coming up - sitting all day at work.  I had a good week last week.

With the kid being born shortly after midnight and neither one of us getting any sleep, I did ont go to Carmel, nor did I run this morning.
