Solid workout on the basement TM:  3 mile progressive warm-up, stopped/stretched, and then ran firm 6 miles (6:27,6:27,6:22,6:22,6:18,6min)- felt great at the end.  I'm going to run very lightly the next 2 days and then give a solid effort for the Turkey Trot 10k on a very tough course.

Ran the local Turkey Trot in Goshen today.  Did a 2-mile warm-up and then got near the front of the line for the start.  There were about 680 runners and the weather was perfect- low 40's, no wind, and full sunshine.  The gun sounded and we were off...

Mile 1:  Hilly, yet a steep downcline in the middle (6:15)

Mile 2:  Flat for the first half, steep downhill and then steep uphill (6:18)

Mile 3:  Half mile uphill (steep) and then half mile down (6:41)- legs are definitely starting to feel it.

Mile 4:  3/4 gradual uphill and then slight downhill before going back up into a trail (7:10)- actually stopped to drink 2 cups of water and seriously considered shifting into a slow jog.

Mile 5:  1/3 mile uphill on a trail, reached the road and did a short dash downhill, and then just steady back up (7:17). 

Mile 6:  Gradual downhill for 2/3 of a mile and then the sharp uphill...basically running part of mile 1 backwards- passed a few on the uphill, including the first place woman (6:56)

.25:  I had enough in the tank to run this part fairly fast...not sure my pace, but most of it was between 6 and 6:20.

Finish:  41:29...my pr on this course is 40:46,  but that's off 70mile weeks, I've been running 40 miles/per week, so felt satisfied with this.  Came in 24th overall and 3rd in my age division.  Well enough to bring home a free pie for Thanksgiving.   Happy Thanksgiving to all bloggers!

Got outdoors.  Started in the mid-40's and was snowing by the end of my run.  Did first 7 miles @ 7:10 pace, veered into the woods for 2 miles, and finished with a slow mile- 10 miles total.
