I was hoping to get the 800m repeats in on Friday giving me one easy day before today's long run but that didn't work out. So today turned into a bit of a back-to-back. Making it interesting, we got our rainstorm rendering the trails muddy and slick, which was especially fun on the steeper downhills. And of course today's rain started just as I walked out the door to start the run.
Tough to complain about weather though when the guys in Ireland have to deal w/ all that "stuff" out there. The sloshing was actually quite enjoyable and I trucked on through for 11 soggy miles.
