Tempo Day   Leave a comment

Today was tempo day.

The training schedule called for 6 miles including 4 mi @7:29 [gulp]

That looked hard…. But… I wanted to train hard so…

Mile 1 – 10:51 nice warm-up… but I had aches and pains in both legs.

Mile 2 – 7:28 – tried not to think…. Decided that I needed new training music.

Mile 3 – 7:35 – tried not to slow down

Mile 4 – 7:29 – began to have to put some effort into holding the pace.. forcing the legs to turn over.

Mile 5 – 7:46 – started in a hole… running along the railroad tracks it is easy to lose focus and let my pace drift… I did for .3 miles or so before I noticed… spent the rest of the mile trying to get lost seconds back.

Mile 6 – 10:55 – spent and wandering… just trying to cool down.

I missed the 7:29 goal… but… I can’t overachieve every day.

I think I’m sick… I’ve been looking forward to this run all week and will replay it in my head a few more times over the next few days.
