Break 3 hours again, but now as a masters runner. It's been 7 years since my last sub 3. I better do this soon as I'm not getting any younger.

I just wasn't feeling it from the start this morning, but I went for it anyways.  I did the first 10 miles with Blake at a low HR and it was easy, but I could tell I wasn't feeling quite right.  Then I took off hoping to run 6 at mp.  Instead I did 5 but couldn't even hold goal mp for 3: (6:47, 6:57, 7:06, 7:15, 7:43).  That was pathetic, but I gave it a strong effort. Then I had to get home and even though I went reallly slow, those last 5 miles hurt.  Today was one of those character building days that are probably good to have every now and then, but are no fun.

That is still a fantastic run, even if you are dissatisfied with the results. Enjoy the additional character!
