AM- Woke up fairly early to give myself some time to get a small breakfast in and do some light stretching. Blood sugar was somewhat high this morning, and when it is higher on race mornings, it is sometimes hard to know how to take care of it (because of the possibility of having a low blood sugar during the race). Dosed a little extra bit of insulin. Jogged down to the race area and warmed up with Sasha for a little bit and got in plenty of strides and drills afterward. Went out and tried sticking with Sasha and some of the front runners, 5:45 first mile. Kept going to the turn around and tried to pick it up, 5:40 second mile. At this point, I was feeling really good, but started to fade a little on the third mile, 5:53. I was really happy with how I performed on this race, and my effort level on it. Always a fun and great race to participate in every year. Short cooldown afterward.
PM- Easy 4 miles on the tready after the drive home. Good to shake the legs out a little bit.
