I never got around to another tweet5k attempt. It wasn't that I didn't get to, I just didn't feel like I needed to do another hard run this week. The legs weren't tired, but they were achy and that usually isn't a good sign. Oh well, I got a pretty good time in all things considered. The other cool thing was I got a tshirt somehow. I guess it was part of a giveaway the day I ran, not real sure. There were some pretty crazy times posted, 13's and 15's is just crazy talk to me. I guess though most of those people ran in college and probably ran all through high school before that. I ran track in high school, but only in season, and of course I only ran cross country my senior year, because we didn't have it before that. It would have been a good night to run hard. It was cooling down and not as windy as it was the other day. There will always be more races to run though, so no big loss.

So I'm not so sure I'm going to do the one mile race. Honestly I like training much more than racing. I mean racing is fun, but it is stressful not only physically, but mentally it wears me down. I've really been wanting to get back to base training, so I don't know, maybe one more fast one, then call it quits for the hard speedwork. I won't quit working on speed entirely, but will just focus more on speed endurance. Thinking about it, this training cycle seems to be perpetually going on. I started back in September, and it just feels like it's time to regroup and start fresh. Just trying to keep an open mind at this point and do what will work best for me.
