Yesterday I ran a great tempo run for 5 miles. I cranked up the last mile with a fast than 7 minute pace that was mostly up hill. The other miles were 7:33 or faster. I felt great! I need a 7:37 pace for 26.2 miles... That will be tougher.
Saturday I have an 8 mile tempo run. I'm really looking forward to that!
It's throwing me off not getting up to 'train' every morning. Everything I've read tells me it's what my body needs.
