3 Tempo

29 Oct

Comments: I had to take walk breaks! That hasn’t happened it quite a while. Overall this was my 2nd fasted tempo run, so that tells me that even though I walked, I ran it harder than usual.

I don’t enjoy these runs (1/4 mile regular pace, 1/4 mile fast, so on and so on) because they are very taxing, but I do realized how important these runs are to increase my overall running fitness. It makes me admire people though that can run marathons at such a fast pace. I was huffing and puffing trying to keep a steady 8:30 min/mile. It is hard for me to imagine running that pace for 26 miles. Nuts! :o)

I ran with contacts today and it’s amazing how much better I can see things! ūüėČ

    I’ve never done a tempo run like that–it sounds really helpful, though!
