Not much time to post tonight. I've got to get to bed since I've got work in the a.m. and then I'm driving to see my wonderful fiance!

Distance: 9 miles
Time: 1:09:45
Pace: 7:45

Today's run called for 9 miles with 5x1000m @ 5k pace. I wasn't sure that I'd actually do the intervals. Tuesday turned into an accidental tempo run and yesterday was a 12 mile MLR. My legs were feeling pretty tired. I decided I'd try to hit 4:00 for the intervals. Somehow, I dug deep and actually got faster with each interval (mostly). Ended up with splits of 3:58, :54, :48, :49, :42. I was super happy with those times. I'm pretty confidant that I'll be able to PR in my half-marathon on the 12th. The only thing I'm not sure of is what to do about my LR. I'm suppose to run a combo 17 miler/tune-up race for Sat/Sun next weekend. Pfitz has the race first and then the LR. But...my race is on Sunday. Not sure if I should bag the LR, run it really slow or turn the half into a 17 miler. Any ideas?
