Happy Tuesday morning all, I am super behind this week already. Only 1 day in and I can't keep things straight.
So I woke up Monday with my most challenging tempo so far staring me in the face- 6 miles with 4@ 8:30 pace. I have never done more than 3 miles in a tempo thus far, except when I make my long runs into a tempo, but the paces there are much slower.
I have had plenty on my mind over the last week, and all my runs have just flown by since I seem to have been preoccupied the whole time, and today was no exception.
By the time my warm-up mile was over and I picked up my pace, I was completely in the zone. While challenging, I still feel like I could be challenging myself more, and will keep that in mind for the coming weeks. I felt great the whole run, and was really happy with another solid tempo.
6 Miles- 52:57, avg pace 8:49
Mile 1- 9:45
Mile 2- 8:30
Mile 3- 8:32
Mile 4- 8:24
Mile 5- 8:27
Mile 6- 9:19
I have 8 easy on deck for today, and with 2 awful nights sleep in a row, I am thinking it is a late night run, or possibly treadmill day. We will see!
