I got up this morning thinking that I was doing an easy 4 mile run on the treadmill. Much to my surprise when I checked my training plan I really had a 5 mile tempo run scheduled for today. I now had to switch my mindset from a nice easy run to an intense tempo run, not an easy task but I did it!!
This tempo run consisted of 5 miles-1 mile warm-up, 3 miles at 8:57 pace and 1 mile cool-down.
Mile 1 warm-up: 5.5 mph
Miles 2-4: 6.7 mph (8:57 pace)
Mile 5: 5.5-6.5 mph
Total time: 47:34
