Aside from a little side stitch that stuck with me for about 5 miles from miles 3 through almost 8, this mornings race went pretty much as planned. I don't think the stitch slowed me down, it was was just real uncomfortable through that stretch. The plan was to take it out in 6:30 and try to hold it, my fastest mile was 6:20 and slowest was 6:32, how's that for consistent!?! AHR was 159, MHR was 165 that came on a on a small hill that you have to take as you enter the Indianaplois Speedway. It really is amazing running around the track. You really don't get a sense of how enormous it really is until your out there on the speedway. I'm glad we had cooler weather this morning, the track can literally bake you if the temp's are anywhere near 80. (BTW, the temp at start time was 47) There was a pretty good headwind on the way out to the track, but we got the tailwind on the way back which was nice. Never struggled at all to hold pace and finished strong (thank you incline training!). I feel pretty good right now and may get another run in this evening, but may think better of it since it's Mothers day tomorrow and don't want to do anything to upset the balance...
