I do enjoy tempo mile interval runs; it gives me a chance to mix a little fast running with slow running; it allows my body to rest and recover after picking up the pace just a bit. ; it also allows for a bit of training variation, as I have blended two trainings into one schedule. I think the added coaching advice will help me here. I did 14 miles of this @ 7:34 pace. Some of my recovery runs were a bit faster than I wanted. I aimed to keep them around 8:20 per mile pace, but I was really stressed for time as I had a meeting at 7 PM. Also, I did not want to fatigue myself on this Friday run; I need to do a hill training session on the mill come Saturday, as well as tackle a long run on Sunday.
Total Miles today:14
Here is the breakdown:
