I was really winded today- literally. I had planned on doing a cutdown (six miles going from 5:50 to 5:00 or so). I even paced my warm up miles. I really tried to do it the way I had planned. But I didn't notice that it was quite windy, but that once I started running, the wind seemed to disappear. Every runner knows that on a windy day when you can't feel anything it's because the wind is at your back. My first mile was 5:34 and it felt amazing. I decided to run about the same for the next mile- I hit 5:32. Its hard to say because I know sometimes I overestimate my ability to hold a pace, but I felt so good. Then I turned around for the rest of the run. Wind was blasting my in the face almost the hole time. When it wasn't I would sometimes "forget" to speed up, so I don't think I gave it my all, but I do think if I could have been consistent without wind my time would have been much faster. Anyway, my splits afterward were: 5:35, 5:33, 5:31, 5:26. Oh well. Hopefully tomorrow goes well!
