No BF the last few days.  The ball of my left foot is acting up a bit.  I'll see if resting it will help.  Also last years knee tendon is coming back to haunt me.

I thought I'd run the 2nd and 3rd downhill miles fast to see how I could do to get and idea of what I might expect for Saturdays 5k.  I ran those fast miles in 6:15 avg. and I was glad I wasn't planning on doing a third.  After about 4.5 miles my left quad started cramping up.  I took a two minute stretch break and it was just fine the rest of the way.

Race: April Fools 5K (3.1 Miles) 00:19:50, Place overall: 1, Place in age division: 1

I ran the April Fools 5K.  No fooling, and I took 1st place overall.  I was hoping that Dallas wouldn't be to far behind me but he got a side ache after only a quarter mile that hit him hard and wouldn't go away.

The course was two laps at Sugar House park and there were only about 75 people.  After a quarter mile I was thinking that I might be able to win this.  I was in 3rd and the pace was at 6:00 even.  After a half mile I was in 2nd place and the pace was slowing.  The 1st mile was in 6:27 and that is when I decided to push ahead and go at my pace.

Miles. 1)6:27,  2)6:26,  3)6:18

Total time 19:50.  I won a $50 gift card to Target and in the drawing I won a hooded sweatshirt.  Dallas got a 29:00 5K going slow with walk breaks.
