AM- morning run, mostly on GE trail. 2 turkeys, 3 runners (looked like HS runners). Felt pretty sluggish at the start with 8:00 pace and thought of calling it quits. Started feeling better at 30 min, then felt real good at 45 min and picked up the pace quite a bit. Was running about 7:10 pace the last 3 miles or so. Then decided to actually do a little speed workout. Did 1 track loop (.68 miles) at 6:15 pace. Felt nice to run fast.
I signed up for the Moonshiner 5k, a night 5k trail race. I have won it 2 or 3 times, and it was my last competitive race 3 years ago. It will be my first race in over 2 years. I'm excited and actually feeling somewhat motivated to run well, on top of my 3x/week frisbee.
Ankle was hurting a bit, likely due to the shoes (400+ miles, 3.5 years old). Left them in the trash in the gym.
