While your 10k might not have been your best perf, time-wise, it still seems solid coming off a tough 50k just 2 (?) weeks prior.
Anyway, if you don't run, are you still planning to go to the lodge on Friday?
I'll be there either way.
I'm really not sure how to appraise the 10K. Yeah, the time was off from where I'd want to be going into PMETR, by a lot. The years I've been under an hour have been the years I've been in 3-hour marathon shape, which roughly translates to 38-something for a 10K. I was prepared to give myself a minute for the fact that I was only 2 weeks out from the 50K, but I didn't think it would cost me 2 minutes.
That said, running a 61 or 62 at PMETR isn't the worst thing that can happen to a person. In fact, it's a pretty respectable time. It's just not what I'm used to posting (at least, not since 2005).
The bigger problem is that my weight is already up for the winter. That could push me more into the mid-60's. Still not terrible, but definitely not what I'd like.
It surprises me that your weight is up. I thought you looked fit/skinny at Babler.
It might not be quite that bad. It shot up the past couple weeks. Combination of recovery, cold weather, Halloween, and two charity galas. It seems to have come back down a bit, but it's still higher than I'd like.
