This was kind of a cutback week. No real long run, the last 20 is next Sunday. I started it off with a 4 mile group run with the YRRC. It went ok and considering I did 20 miler day before. Took Tuesday off. Wednesday was speedwork day, me and Rick went up to Buhl park and did 8 half mile intervals around Casino loop. I initally felt it went well. It was pouring rain and shoes got heavier has I went. Started at 3:35, slowest was 3:38. I hit my fastest time of 3:31 twice including on the last one. Overall I averaged 3:34. Then I looked in my log and I realized that I was 8 seconds slower on average then last time I ran them. I try not to worry about that too much, I try to run but percieved pace. I just run intervals hard. But to qualify it 3 things,
* Last time I only ran 6 so in back of mind I knew I was running 2 more.
* It was raining pretty good, shoes were waterlogged when I finished.
* I had run 20 miles on Sunday, last time I had only run 9 on Sunday before.
So perhaps all those things added up to a little slower time.
Tomorrow I got a 10 or 12 miler planned. Whatever everyone there feels like doing. Then Monday doing the Buhl day 5K.
