Did what has recently become the weekly 1/2 marathon pace tempo run at noon on Kuhni Road. Backed off the distance a bit this week and did 6 miles. Didn't have to do the whole thing alone this time as Darin C joined me for about 4 of the 6 miles.
This run felt harder than it should have for some reason. I was able to hit the pace I wanted but it felt as hard or even harder than last weeks 8-miler. Oh well I guess that's just how it goes some days.
On the bright side my right achilles didn't bother at any point of the run and afterward as I went to ice it I realized after a minute I was actually icing the wrong leg! So I guess if the pain is decreased to the point I can't remember which achilles has the problem it must be just about recovered. This makes me happy.
Ave pace 6:40. Splits were 6:39, 6:43, 6:36, 6:40, 6:42, 6:38.
