6 miles on the track.  56:03  9:21 ave.  What a weird run.  I felt totally disoriented the first 3 miles.  My arms and legs didn't seem to work in unison, I even felt a little dizzy.  My first 3 miles were 9:54  10:03  10:01.  10 minute miles? Yeah, something was wrong and it felt weird.  4th mile 9:19 then things changed almost instantly.  I felt great, strong fast and light.  8:28 the 8:17.

Starting to settle into "running shoes", I've been out of my Crocs for a few days now, no particular reason, just doing something a little different.  I think running in Crocs has built up my leg muscles much better than traditional shoes.  I feel stronger in running shoes.

slow slogging today, very tires.  Going at it slow, easy and short so I'll be ready for the 10K on Saturday.

Pretty much a perfect race day.  No wind and mild temperature.

1st mile 6:50

2nd mile 6:48

3rd mile 6:49

4th mile 6:46

5th mile 6:45

6th mile 6:41

.2 end  1:18  (6:30 pace)

My race plan came together perfectly.  This is exactly how I wanted to run this race.  The only minor quibble was that I wanted to be about 3 to 5 seconds per mile faster, but don't we all?  I've been running this race for about 8 consecutive years.  Today was a course PR for me and white ribbon 3rd place finish.  Call me crazy but I'll pour my guts out to win a elementary-school-3rd place-spelling bee-style ribbon.  I'm very happy!
