Tempo Run - 10-06-09
I ran a tempo run this morning without a running partner. I have read articles that say you should not run tempo runs with anyone, but I disagree. Having someone there to push the pace is a huge help. I never seem to go fast enough when I am running on my own.
I ran an out and back six mile route that went from my house to Sullivan's Island. I warmed up with the first mile (9:22) and then picked up the pace for the middle three (8:26, 8:39, 8:36). My last mile I kept at marathon pace (8:53).
The air was really wet and the temperature was nice and cool. I am still working out the soreness in my legs from Saturday, but I felt pretty good. I am looking forward to the track workout in the morning. I can not believe I only have 18 more days until the Marine Corps Marathon!
