5:10 road mile. Not what I wanted, the two climbs, the wind, yada yada. There are always reasons not to have run faster. Anyway, some things.
Swimming teaches this well, but so does fast running: faster ain't harder, faster is faster. Tense and flail and you're not going to have a good time.
A guy ran 4:20, who was close to sub-4 at KU, a couple years ago. That looks really fast, up "close".
I talked to a lot of people. I never need reminded that this is a great running community, but I like to be all the same.
So, it was fun. I'm enjoying running and racing right now. That's a boring sentence, but it's true.
Oh, also: my ankle feels fine. Weirdly, only volume seems to agitate it. I can run for over an hour at any pace, no problem. Close to 90 minutes, though...
