82.8km / 51.5 mi.
12:00 - Gym workout

So not bad - against a wind, too. Felt ok, but not real good.

7:30pm - 10.8k - 5,000m time trial on the track with club.
Wanted to run 20:00, but this was ok. Not much warmup. Felt pretty good from the 2nd k, good effort the whole way.
Weather: 5C/41F ? anyway, cold

2:30 - 22k killer hill workout
5k warmup in 27:21, 1.2k hill x 5 up and down.
3 hard effort down, 1 hard up, then last one hard up, hard down and continue on for hard effort 5k, which was 23:54 @ 4:48 (into wind and with heavy shoes). Hard workout!

Tried to run MP (4:30 or less) or at least hard 2nd 5k (to tire my quads), than again last 10k. Didn't run MP, but worked hard and finished well. Knee ok. Left hamstring and butt a bit sore, but not bad.
