Running race 1:02:28  15.0 km (4:10 / km)
Boilermaker 15k - pretty decent run all things considering. Ankle was feeling mostly back to normal and I had an unintended taper before the race. I've done this race like 7 or 8 times but it's been like 13 years since the last one. I took it easy out of the start and stuck to my pace really well for the first 3 miles (aiming for 6:40). The hills were hard (7:11 uphill) and a lot more downhill than I remember (clocked a 6:11). The last mile was out in the sun and my right leg was feeling a bit crampy so I was falling off pace.
Timewise this was still solid vdot 51. Not near my best of 57 minutes, but also not terrible for the first long road race in a while. Looks good for a sub 3:10 marathon, but not sure if I'll see much more improvement time wise. Feels like I've plateaued here.
