I'm behind on my blog by one week.  The only thing to report here is that my legs were tired for this one.  Running 5:30s felt hard.  Running 5:40s felt hard.  Legs were made of glue and wanted to stick to the asphalt of Dilworth Road West instead of bouncing elastically off the pavement.  I powered through to still get about 4.5 miles of the best effort I could give on that day, so I was happy with that.  With just one more race left in this month, I'm looking forward to getting back on the normal workout schedule of Tuesday/Friday with a quality long run on Sunday.
