Decided to just do league, as I've been feeling fatigued. Must have been a good idea, because I played a lot better than I have been lately.

Went around WHP + PH from HC. Added 4 x 2:00 hard, 2:00 recovery. 70 and sunny and felt so hot--no acclimation at all yet! But the hard paces were 6:45-6:50 and a couple recoveries were sub-8:00 pace on the carriage roads, so even on that surface I was able to run faster than the mill for what felt like a similar effort.

Easy run with S around WHP from HC. Ran reasonably early (8:30) but already quite warm. Later played 18 holes but took a cart because it was quite hot on the course.

Did absolutely nothing on Saturday, and it was good. Easy morning run in the dry, cool air--felt stronger as I went--and Couples' with M in the afternoon.

Ran Schooner Head with 5 x 1:00 hard, 1:00 recovery as a sharpener. Ran around 7:00 pace on level areas, 6:26 downhill and 7:49 pace (!) up the big hill. Paces felt slow relative to effort. It was warm but not all that hot out.

Easy pre-race run with a 2:00 acceleration from 7:03 to 6:53 pace. Stomach kicked in so had to cut the warmdown short, but got what I wanted overall.

Warmed up .9 miles with a 1:00 acceleration. Went out a lot harder than in past years, so with the down/up out-and-back course, I knew it would be a positive split. Went through 1 mile in 6:29, passed 2 more people in the first part of the 2nd mile, then stayed in the same place the entire way back. Think I red-lined going up and through Highseas, so had to back off the first big uphill. Mile 2 was 6:53, and it was time to hang on for dear life up the rest of the hills. 3rd mile was 7:19. I slowly caught up to two other runners but didn't have the mental fortitude to push past them and finished 4 and 8 seconds behind them respectively. Then again, the last .13 was at 6:02 pace per Garmin, so I did try, just a little too late. Happy with this, as it's my first sub-7 pace race in years.
