3x3200m on the track. I was hoping to start at about 10:15 and cut down to 10:00, but I bled a little time on each one and ended up with 10:14, 10:17, 10:21. Still, I'm fairly pleased with the workout since I did it alone, and it's the first serious workout I've completed so far. 

I registered for Bloomsday yesterday and got entered into the elite field, which should be a lot of fun. My training will focus on being ready for that race, and maybe I'll look for a good quality 10k in late May or early June. It would be nice to try to crack 31 this year.

11 easy, Whatcom loop. My left shin is giving me some grief. I'd hoped that new shoes and lots of icing would ease its anger, but not yet.

I drove out to Arroyo park and ran down the Urb to Cleator and ran up to the top. This climbs 1600 ft over 3.5 miles, and I completed it today in 27:35, considerably slower than my last run up. I headed along the Chuckanut Ridge trail back to the Lost Lake trail and then back to the truck.
