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!

Sounds like a soggy mess of a run. Wow, can't believe you'll be tapering so soon. Good luck this Sunday, I'll be thinking about you and waiting to hear all about it.

Thanks. Hopefully my legs wont feel like wet sand bags anymore.
