Wow - my quads are horribly sore today - I could barely manage a 9:00 jog for a couple miles.  The bushwhacking involved with yesterday's race has left me with some shredded legs - there are literally about 20 or 30 slices in my legs below the knees from the thorns/underbrush!  Its difficult to walk down the stairs - that's how tight the quads are! :)

AM 5k race - 75 degrees and very humid.  Had the usual guys for the CR series races show up plus a high school kid.  Danny Fisher was all alone in first, while Tom and I, and the high school kid were battling it out for second.  The high school kid went in about 5:30 for mile and faded throughout.  Tom and I passed at about 1.5.  Tom and I ran together and I kicked it on in to the finish to beat him out by about 3 or 4 seconds.  The heat played havoc with everybody apparently.  The effort felt like an even effort throughout, but the splits did not reflect as such:

5k race - 5:43, 5:57, 5:57, :47 for the 0.15mi.- 18:24

AM: additional speed work - geared toward 5k/10k goals ( I think)

1.21 WU with the dog,

1mi.-5:36 w/ 0.25 mi. rec. // 2x0.5mi. w/ 0.25 mi. rec. - 2:44, 2:42 // 0.25mi. - 70

CD a couple minutes
