Thunderbolt and lightning-very very frightening me
Rain. Thunder. Lightning. Ankle deep water across the road in Central Park. Sure, that sounds like a great way to start a run! And that was just in the first 2 miles. Luckily, it eased up. I will admit that Rachel and I considered making it short. She was going for 20, me for 17. Honestly though, bad math and some lack of giveashit made my run just shy at 16.2. I was tired at the end there. I almost never cut my runs short. I was wet, had prune feet and really was just done. Still averaged 9:20 pace which is totally where I should be for long runs.
Other runs this week included a fast 11 and an 8 with 5x600.
Sunday I have a 4 mile tune up race. I'm hoping to go under 30 minutes.
Next week is my last big training week, then bring on TAPER MADNESS. Already? I can't believe it!
