Tempo running

Good hard run today.




I ran a little over 5 miles in the heat, with the middle part of the run at a pretty good pace. I didn't really know it at the time, but it turns out I was running close to 7:30 for that middle mile. I slowed down after that, and although I was tired at the end, I wasn't totally wiped.

I'm (slowly) reading this book about the FIRST training program, and it talks about running tempo runs at a "comfortably hard" pace. I think I was right on that today.

As for my ankle, it seems ok. The weekend's event doesn't seem to have had a major effect. It's just annoying that it's still an issue, and not history already. I guess I have to get used to that still.

Run Less, Run Faster, I'll have to look into that. Sorry your ankle is still troubling you, with your long run last weekend you seem to be pushing through it. Running seems to be a lot of pain management.
