I decided last minute to come run this 5k clear up in Pleasant View. Riley talked me into it a little bit, letting me know it was a fast downhill course. I get tired pretty fast nowadays, I didn't want anything too difficult, but I also wanted another 5k to race. There was also some cash that went to 1st and 2nd place. I got out at the start but after 10 feet there was a high school girl in front. I figured there would be someone in front, she pretty much led the rest of the way, I think I ended up losing to her by 20 seconds. She was a cute girl and a strong runner for Weber High School. The first mile was on a canal road which was fairly flat. Riley wasn't kidding when he said there was a lot of downhill, the 2nd mile was all screaming downhill, which left my legs feeling a little jello-y at the start of mile 3. Mile 3 was similar to the first mile more flat and one uphill, then the last .11 was a very fast finish. I was pleasantly surprised by my time for 15 weeks preggo, I'll take it. Splits: 6:32, 6:01, 6:34, .11-34 sec.

I did a 2 mile warm up and decided to try a 3 mile tempo. Miles 1 and 3 were mostly downhill and mile 2 was mostly uphill. I struggled big time on mile 2, it's hard to stay motivated doing these workouts. Splits: 6:38, 7:23, 6:45. 2 mile cool down.

2.3 miles on the treadmill, then 5.3 miles outside. I do a little on the treadmill so I don't have to run a full hour out in the heat.
