Tough Tempo

Distance: 9 miles
Time: 1:10:04
Pace:  7:47

It may look like today's run was great but it wasn't that good. I was able to run the tempo portion at tempo pace, but it really hurt and I was dying at the end. I think Tuesday's intervals took a lot out of my legs.

I did a 2 mile warm up on the track (15:56) then hit the tm for 5 miles (35:40) and finished with a 2 mile cool down on the track (18:27). In all, I am happy with the effort. I think next week I might just do one speed day to let my legs rest a little.

I'm actually surprised with the quality of my speed days this week. Last week was my mileage PR (47) and I'm on track to run 50 this week. That being considered, my workouts have been much better than expected.

I'll end this post on a geek note. This is the first post from my "new" computer. I am now running Ubuntu 8.04 instead of Mac osX 10.4 on my G4 powermac :)

  1. nice job on the tempo. bummer that you weren't feeling as great as the stats show.

    i'm sure it has to do with the intervals. it's always a fine line of how much to push at each workout so you can recovery well for the next one but still get the benefits of the current session.

    haha and i love the geek note. i consider myself a geek but totally not when it comes to computers. so props to you :)
