yeah that's sensible. i think i'll prioritize the 5k time trial, though, it's the one i actually care about. that's soon, though, so i'll have to lay out a little plan for the next few weeks.

also: turned in my master's thesis. pending my final grades, i'm done with grad school. :almostascoolasnyancat:

edit: and also, now that i think about it, they froze our grades when the lockdown started. so i'm pretty sure i will be graduating with distinction regardless of how i do on my thesis. 

:highfive:

- warm up x 1 km; 1.5 km race pace tempo in [5:41, 5:33, 5:40] w/ 3 mins walking rest; cool down x 1 km
T+DI 130. was a little apprehensive about this going in. it was a bit challenging but didn't wreck me or push me that hard, which is a good sign i think. it's good to get a feel for what 18:59 feels like step by step. the second interval was a little fast, more like ~18:32 pace. first and last were on the money.

- stretch

i don't think i'm in sub-19 shape. but gonna lower volume and up intensity a bit for the next two weeks to get more practice at race pace. then taper for a few days so i can time trial right before i leave on my trip. worse comes to worst i blow the time trial and have a little break before getting back on the horse.

rained hard on thursday and decided not to make it up yesterday.

today

- tennis with dad x ~45 mins
started out loose and good and then he tightened up a bit as we went along.

- warm up x 1 km; 500m intervals in [1:59, 1:57, 1:55, 1:55, 1:53, 1:53] w/300m running rest; cool down x 1 km
too easy, which is a good sign i think. had to pee super bad the whole time.

T+DI 100 (!!!!!!!!!). perfect fall day.

- run 15.02 km in 1:16:37
nice and easy, strong negative split for a 5:06 average pace. didn't note T+DI but it was similar to yesterday, maybe a few degrees warmer.

also walked about 7 km with my parents this morning, through a park by the capitol, by the supreme court to see the impromptu memorial to ruth bader ginsburg (many people down there), and then to see the new eisenhower memorial.
