- speed work
-- warm up x 2 km
-- 800m x [3:00, 2:55, 3:00]
-- cool down
added a rep, will add another next time. these are probably too fast for half marathon prep - i'd be better off doing more, slower - but i like keeping them in as a way to measure progress against the eventual goal of a sub-19 5k.

glacial pace. ran w/gf and she had done a sprint workout yesterday so was very sore. have long since realized that it's more important to me to treat running as shared time with her than to maximize every workout from a fitness standpoint.

- tempo
-- warm up x 2 km
-- 6 km @ 4:17 [4:20, 4:18, 4:14, 4:21, 4:14, 4:16]
-- cool down
pleased with that. i lowered the pace substantially and added a km, and i managed to not quit on myself when, somewhere around halfway through, i started trying to tell myself that it'd be fine to stop at 5 km.

4:17/km average is just over 1:30 half marathon pace. five weeks out, there is no way on god's green earth that i'm running 3.5 times the distance at this pace on 18 march. but it's okay.

a spectacularly miserable day: about 39/4 degrees and raining/hailing, and on the ascent home the wind picked up. always feels good not to quit on myself but ngl this was not an enjoyable run.

lost week, i went out to run on monday evening and my heel hurt so i stopped right away. then the rest of the week was just nuts with work and life stuff. layoffs like that are always demotivating for me. got back out today w/gf just to do something.

- run 30:10, 5.00 km
blah. at least it's nice out.

-- 800m x [3:09, 3:07, 3:09, 3:10]
-- cool down
legs unsurprisingly a little tired after the ten-miler yesterday. slowed these down to target 5k race pace (i.e., by about 10s/km) and they felt like the faster ones.

- 5k race in 19:46 (chip), 19:48 (watch)
same course as last time, which i think confirms that it's a little short. but hey, chip time is chip time and maybe my watch is off. the field was faster than usual, i finished tenth overall but way behind the leaders. three people finished in 16:xx, three in 17:xx (including a woman!), and two in 18:xx, and one woman finished about thirty seconds ahead of me. fiancee PR'd in 22:36, 24th overall. and my mom also PR'd, in 35:33. good stuff.

the 10k winner finished in 33:20!!! his 5k split was faster than the winning 5k time. damn.

EDIT: this is actually a chip-timed PR, which gets the gif:  :personal-record:
