Week 4: Tempo Run

Whoa! Not enough sleep last night but decided to do this week's tempo run this morning. The plan called for 6 miles, included 4 x 7:40. Well, I've got to be the world's worst at sensing what my pace is and I'm too cheap to buy a Garmin (and don't want to be constantly looking at it anyway). So, I just run sustainably hard for a tempo run. These were my splits this morning:
1.0 x 9:06.68
1.0 x 7:26.41
1.0 x 7:08.39
1.0 x 7:13.50
1.0 x 7:20.50
1.1 x 8:34.96

Not too bad and I did the 6.1 miles in 46:40.84 (7:39 mpm) -- extrapolated out to 6.2 miles and I was right at my goal time for the 10K. Maybe I set my goal too low?

Run well, y'all,
Bob
