After a fun filled weekend I woke up at 5 am to Tempo. I had my doubts on how my performance would be, but I was in bed at a descent hour yesterday so I was able to catch up on the rest!!
I had 3 miles at 6:45 on the schedule... that is 6:45 miles not 6:45 am :)
I decided to do 2 miles for warm up and then hit the paces.
Mile 1 - 6:39
Mile 2 - 6:45
Mile 3 - 6:42
Of course I decided to make it an even 5K...
Total time was 20:45 for running a 5k solo on a Monday Morning. This gives me a little self confidence that I may be able to break 20:00 when I actually decided to race a 5k next time.
After the tempos, I waited on the rest of the group and ran 3.5 easy to make it a total of 8.5 for the day.
The rest of the week is going to be tappered a little. I want to be rested for my half marathon on Sunday! After the last couple of weeks of no rest days, I need to be smart this week and take it super easy otherwise Sunday will just be a disaster.
