Tempo Run

All organic but the gluten-free bread
and the 100% grass-fed hamburger
I like to run fairly hard with one week to go before a long race, and I have a half marathon coming up next weekend, so today I ran pretty hard, or so I thought. The route was two loops, each 2.51 miles, somewhat hilly, and the temperature was in the low 40's.  I ran with no walking and thought I was running nine-minute miles or better, it felt like that, but the pace was actually 9:40.  I’m a little disappointed.

No pains of any kind, though.  That’s good.  But I’m thinking that a ten-minute pace is the best I can hope for in that half, and maybe not even that fast.

First loop 24:56, second loop 23:34, total 48:30, pace 9:40.
