Running race 8:49  1.0 mi (8:49 / mi)
shoes: New Balance MT572
I made my first attempt at the 3000m but the splits just got worse and worse so I packed it in, hopefully saving something for other attempts: 1:02, 2:08; 2:10; 2:14 and 1:14. Only the first 200m were at pace.
I didn't have a warm-up as I had tried to measure the distance from home to track. The snowfall was so great that the GPSr didn't grab any satellites before I arrived at the track. Windchill was -9 but that wasn't an issue. The wind itself at 15kph and patches of slippy ice on the track did have an impact on speed...but not on the slowing pace, that's just me.
