06/14/2016 Nice tempo run on the Franklin Lakes Triathlon course, 3 days to go! @wyckoffymca

I headed up to the Indian Trail Club this afternoon to run the course ahead of Saturday's triathlon relay.  My leg is the 5 mile run, filled with awesome hills!  I fully intended to simply get on the course and jog, and mentally go over the race in my head.  After I started running, I threw that idea out the window and picked up the pace, dropping a 35 minute tempo-ish run down.  I ran each mile harder than the previous.  

The anxiety level has been rising over the last weeks, especially this week.  I was happy to be back on the course today and to run strong.  I need to trust my training and all the miles and hills I have put in.  The two difficult hills on the course come in mile 4.  I know what to expect and I have run worse hills.  My splits look like this:
