AM: DRAPER DAYS 5K
I ran the Draper Days 5k this morning. I rode down with Ken, Ben, and Wolpert. I have felt pretty terrible all week long, and just since Thursday my lymph nodes have swollen up and I have had a substantial amount of fatigue. So, I wasn't sure how well this morning would go. Turns out the first two miles went about as I would expect, but I was simply out of oomph in that last mile and just really felt blah!
They changed the course since the last time I ran it in 2013, and I think I like the old course better. But the elevation profiles are pretty simlar. I finished first in 15:22, Ben was 2nd in 15:36, Ken 3rd in 15:46, Wolpert won the master's in 16:52. So our car left with the max amount of money we possibly could! It was fun to have the Ogden Crew sweep.
Splits: 4:53, 4:47, 5:04, and 5:02 pace for last tenth.
PM: 7 miles on the Parkway with Ken taking turns every half mile pushing Hannah and Everett in the double stroller, avg pace 6:45/mile. It's the first time this week (including this morning) that I actually felt decent; maybe I'm turning a corner and getting my legs and energy back.
