12 miles on the Padden horse trails. 1:28 total time. Wet and sloppy now that things have warmed up a bit. My shin is feeling normal again, and there's been no pain in my arch. Happy to feel a little less banged up.

8x300m hills + 2x300m on the track. I was surprised by a downed tree on my first hill rep, so that had to be hurdled each rep. 2:30 rests as usual. The track reps were both  49s and felt a little sluggish. I was still a little congested from being sick, so I suppose it wasn't a huge surprise.

3 sets of 800, 400, 200 at 5k pace. Since my workout schedule got scrambled a bit by school, coach gave me this as a light supplemental workout to yesterday and still have plenty of time to rest before my race Sunday. I was stoked with how well it went. It was windy and I planned to just run 75 pace, but I started at 72s and it felt right, so I went with it. Rests were 2:00, 1:00, 30s.

2:25, 72, 36

I'm feeling more fit than I have in a long time. Weighed in at 144, meaning I've lost my 10 lbs of soda weight from summer and fall and am back to my typical racing weight.
