Tempo Run - 8-18-09

What an awesome day. I ran my seven mile tempo run this morning and then came home to take my son to his first day of school.

Although I usually meet a group downtown for my tempo run, I wanted to ensure that I was home in time. I got up extra early and started my run from my house. The run felt great and I made it home in plenty of time.

I started with a slow warmup mile (11:08). I increased my pace, but my pace was a little slow (8:50, 9:00, 9:30, 8:55, 8:45). I could not figure out where my turnaround was and could not see my watch so the middle mile time was slower. I finished with a cooldown mile (10:25).

I know that my pace would have been better if I was running with the group, but when family needs and training schedules collide family should always win...
