Ok, so I wasn't supposed to push hard on this run with the Olympic Tri coming up...but I did...couldn't help it...I've been working so hard on my form and tempo the last two months that I wanted to test the legs...not the best thing for this Sunday's Olympic I'm sure but I know what's inside now and can do better...
