Today was a good day. I got to the gym, had a good core workout (and didn't forget to do any exercises!) and then went for a run after work. I felt pretty fresh for the run and managed to go a bit quicker than usual. Bonus.
At the Fleet Feet Sports run we started out very mellow but once you hit Volunteer Park the pace always picks up. I got gapped running through the park, caught back up on the descent and even passed a few going down through the Interlaken ravine but then once we hit the flats the lead pack pulled away from me. Oh well, that's to be expected.
So I ran alone for a while until we started climbing again on the way home at which point I was caught and passed by one of the faster guys that must have been separated early on for some reason. Near the top I decided to put in an effort and closed to within 15' as we crested the hill in Volunteer Park but then I promptly blew and had to walk for a bit. By the time I got settled and started running again it was none other than Trisha Steidl who closing ME down.
When I got home it looked like I had aggravated my blister from Sunday just a bit but hopefully nothing too serious. I was pretty pumped to put in a solid effort on this day.
