I'm also eying PRs for other distances this year. [the marathon? maybe. I will have to evaluate closer to November]. man, these are old. like during law school old.

I have races of all those distances this year so
I will have my chances.
today's run on the B&A trail
was a 3/1 long run. per Higdon, a 3/1 run is one in which you run the first three-fourths of the distance at a comfortable pace, then accelerate to near race pace over the last one quarter of the workout. the wind was really against me and somehow knew to pick it up when I had to pick it up!
how's that for a negative split?
and then this happened which was terrible but hot tea and playing on pinterest on my phone made it bearable for 10 minutes.
