Last week I posted about my tempo run and called Tempo a "he". Jamoosh commented that he thought Tempo was a she because people say 'tempo is a witch (with a B)'. My tempo run this week was challenging again. Since I have a competition going with myself to see my improvement, I was looking forward to my run.
I warmed up with a mile, then picked up the pace. I looked at the watch a couple times and I swear it said 7:45's so when the mile lap came up as 7:17 I was super surprised. Remember, my goal is 7:40 How could I possibly have run that fast when it was a struggle? Next mile was 7:26 and then the last mile at 7:45. That is HORRIBLE pacing and the last mile was really tough and I started walking the second I finished it. My goal for next week is to have the third mile be fastest. It'll be ok if I run the first 2 miles at 7:45 as long as the third mile is faster. At least my overall pace was faster for the 3 miles.
