I decided to run the local 10K this morning. I did not really prepare specifically  for it - just thought I would add it in. I did okay I suppose. I could have set my PR for a 5K today gauging on how strong I felt, however I seemed to slow down a bit over the last 2 miles. Odd how my training is much further but of course I am not pushing that hard. 

Ran a recovery run in the evening to add some more miles to my day and felt pretty good. I know the blog is for me to help keep me honest in my training and that is great (and important, I know no one on this blog so no one is checking), but I kept thinking I should have done better in the race. It let's doubt creep in. Boston has become a real goal for me and I want to make sure I prepare right. Maybe it is time to add some speed work back in now that I feel fairly comfortable with my base miles.
