So this is weird. For the past week I've been running 5 miles a day. This weekend is my peak 20-miler.
Anyway, somehow I've gotten slower, it seems. No matter how hard I try, I can't seem to break 40 minutes in my 5-mile runs anymore. This is bizarre, considering back in April I ran it in 39:30, and I thought I would have gotten faster. No idea.
I'm not getting tripped-up on it, though, because speed doesn't matter as much for me at marathon distance.
