Felt a little tired the last few days but I think it's the minor cold I have, which isn't bothersome, but I am guessing it is draining my energy. My legs were really responsive today. Hit the last lap at 4:30 pace and I had to break around two sororitiy girls, a guy in a wheel chair, and another girl who looked back, saw me, and decided to try to pass anyway. The track is maybe 8 feet wide and three lanes (walkers taking up the first two).
Not sure whay Saturday will bring. I have a time goal, but I think I would rather go out and compete if I can. Never can tell. Some years the winner is in the 33-minute range, others in the 34-35. If the guy will the belly who has been running 35ish minutes the last few years, I would like to beat him.
Late: 35 minutes of rolling, stretching, and core. Compared some bro-style selfies I took from when I was going through my injury blues (which don't represent as bad as things got) and tonight. The side profile was very telling. Down to 171-173, which is on the edge of fall racing weight. I'd like to be 165-167 on April 21, and the rate I have been going (1-1.5 lbs a week) I will get there without sacrificing training/racing performance or health. Down 10 lbs from the week of Jan 5-11. Last I checked 166 is the Bam + 40 goal unless he has completely gone sheet-o-papah.
I will try to keep my everyday entires shorter in the future. Apparently it has been diary month.
