Ran the East High Leopard Run this morning. This was the first race on the USATF LDR calendar for the year. I finished third among the masters. Steve Anderson was in his own world running 15:3? - setting a masters course record. Nathan Pollard, always tough in 5k's, passed me on the track at the finish. My splits were 5:24, 5:18, 5:24, and 31 seconds for the last tenth. I wasn't too happy with my place, but can't complain about the 16:37. I ran 18 seconds ahead of my time last year.
This was a big race this year. Maybe 800 runners. It's only in its second year, but is definitely one of Salt Lake's best run races. Bill Cobler, the race director, does a really good job.
PM Workout: Easy run plus some cross training. Ran to gym and back (2.5 miles). Three miles on the eliptical. Then did a moderate strength workout.
My right achilles tendon is bothering me. Iced it twice today.
