I am looking foward to racing again next weekend. 10 Miles is an awesome distance. I have really grown into it as it is a great mixture of speed and endurance. I have never done Army before, but I am really looking foward to it. I hope this race goes much better than the Philly Half(back in Sept).
I had a good training week and on Tuesday did one of the best interval workouts I have ever done. The mileage was less this week so I'd get into a taper for Army. Pretty much after my workout on Tuesday I started tapering. My long run of 18 miles seemed unbelievably short. I felt like I could've run another 10.
