biking 12:04  1.85 mi (6:31 / mi)
Rushing over to the MIT track. 5k time trial.... I ran and played pretty hard over the weekend, not sure if Monday evening is really the best time for this. That being said, I can't think of a day this week where I will be better prepared and plus I like the support and companionship of running with CSU.
Track 11:11  0.52 mi (21:30 / mi)
some warm up some drills, didn't have my garmin on for a lot of this stuff. the warmup actually worked wonders, managed to get all the molasses out of my system before starting (8:31 or so for actual gun time, Sam had predicted it wouldn't be until 8:45).
Track 16:17  3.23 mi (5:02 / mi)
5 k time trial. ran with the CSU crowd, Ian, Brendan, Clem, Giovanni, Katia and Dasha as our official timer.
very nervous before starting, and feeling tight and slow until doing stretching and strides... then I felt pretty good actually.
I was aiming for 16:00. I feel like I have the fitness. I will need to work on my pacing. It's hard to go by feel because a 77 second lap in practice feels just like a 70 second lap when the adrenaline of racing is coursing through the system.
As seems to be my wont, I started much too fast 32 second 200 split, and 70 second 400 split. dropped off quickly, and was working very hard to keep my splits even near 80 seconds. I finished, and after dry heaving a few times over on the grass, I just wanted to go and try again.

Home again home again, jiggity-jig. As I was raised to say. Sam was still up when I got home, reading Pride and Prejudice (so that she can have a fuller appreciation of "...and Zombies" when she reads that next.)
we were nearly out of milk but had lots of chocolate milk leftover from one of the dessert queen's creations. I had a large bowl of cheerios with golden raisins in chocolate milk before bed. very sweet.
