Boy oh boy what a run. I felt reasonably tired after another higher mileage week and then ran a hilly route from Richmond back to Burlington with a brutal headwind (15-20mph) most of the way. This made the last 5 miles, which were supposed to be cutdowns from 5:30 to 5:20 to 5:10 to 2x5:00. That most definitely didn't happen. I wasn't even able to muster the effort of those paces. That was a little disappointing. I don't know if it was the wind or fatigue, but I found it mentally tough to stay focused. Oh well. I averaged around 6 minute pace for those last 5 miles and felt great about it.
