Plans to run sprint courses in Stadssgkogen with Hammer and rob fell through, so I dragged myself out to run one lap around backbana at easy pace. Of course, "easy pace" for backbana still means you are huffing and puffing on the uphills, no matter how slow you are going. As a result, I ended up pushing pretty hard and felt like i was going to beat my time from the last time i ran here, just before heading to the US for Team Trials, since that time i didn't push very hard. Well, as i made my way up the last hill and got to the finish line, i saw that my time was exactly the same, to the second, as last time. I guess this means i lost some form over the last month, as it was more of an effort to run 30:12 this time than a month ago, but that shouldn't be surprising, looking at my "training" the last month...
