Tempo Run - 9-29-09
What a difference temperature can make on a run. It was beautiful this morning. The temperature was around sixty degrees and just felt awesome!
I met up with three other runners in Downtown Charleston for a five mile tempo run. Cutting the mileage back also made a huge difference. We did an out and back from the MUSC Wellness Center to the Charleston Battery.
We started with a group warm up mile (11:56). After that we picked it up and ran the next three miles at a pretty fast pace (7:41, 7:45, 8:05). We slowed down for a cool down mile at the end (11:32).
This was a nice tempo run and it felt great running this morning. If the weather is like this (or cooler) for the marathon, I will have no problem hitting my time.
