2 mile WU
7 mile tempo at 5:50s pace
2 mile CD
Well today was cold in the morning so I bundled up in tights, hats, gloves, under armor, etc. It took awhile to get warmed up. I had a tempo run on the docket at projected goal marathon pace. It was a rough one but I think that's because I didn't do a better job of pacing. I always end up going too fast i.e. 5:30s 5:40s, or too slow 6:00s but I got it right by the third mile. It's hard to nail the 5:50s so I have to pay attention. You can see from my splits that my paces were a little messed up this time around. oh well, I still averaged a pretty decent pace even with the cold and extra clothes.
