CR Series Race in Brownstown, IN today.  A hilly out and back course on 90% paved road.  The guy who's won it every year for last 5 years broke his course record with a 16:3x today and most of the regulars did not show up, so I was alone in second for the whole race.  Didn't have the watch for the race, because I thought I had left it at home, so no splits.  

An 11 second improvement over last year, and retaking the lead in the Series today, so a good day.  2.5 mi. WU w/ 5x strides, 5k Race - 18:09, ran the course again at MP and a couple shorter faster intervals after a couple minutes recovery:  3.11mi. AT - 21:00, a couple min. standing recovery, 1mi. LT - 5:45, jog 0.3mi. rec., 0.7mi. LT - 4:11 

 

PM: 12 mi. w/ 5mi. cutdown - 6:53, 42, 38, 29, 17 --1:28:06 total

Another 100 mile week!!
