A BADAb week.
Today was crazy.
YMCA in the morning. 10K. First 10K since the bang of easter. Finishing on 37.35. 5th? place. Happy! As Haile would’ve said, there’s no need in making excuses. The course ( as all courses in Bloomington ) was hilly, but you all know that by now…
Decided not to go to the Nationals at the IU cross country course, instead I went to Nashville, IN, with Frank and Amanda for 5K race. Finished on 5th? place, at 18.55. Won a pair of Hoosier socks.

A nice speed work week. Probably not so much more quality like this before Tecumseh. Felt like crap in the beginning of the week but after yesterday’s rest and the two races today I feel very good. The weather has also been very good this week, my knees, ligaments and tendons really seem to like warmer weather.
