Saturday: AM 5k road race, 2 miles up 5k race in 19:53, 2 miles down, hot and hilly course made a fast time difficult, I came 11th overall and 1st in my age group, still 1st in the series standings for my age group 50 – 60 PM Rest & Recovery, 7.1 miles for the day.

Sunday: AM Long run solo 16 miles averaging 7:30 per mile, hot and a little humid I ran over the hills in the park. PM Rest and recovery, 16 miles for the day.

Summary: 66 miles, 9 runs, the 5K race time was a little disappointing but you can’t run PR’s every race. I won my age group and all the times were affected by the course and the weather. It is good to get the miles back up. I am on track with my base preparations for the marathon training segment starting soon.
