There was more wind then I would have liked today for the Tempo run and rather then talk myself out of it and delay it a day I figured I would just get it over. Little did I know that today would turn out to be much better then I expected. Plan was 14 miles with 6 tempo miles @ 6:30 pace. Ended up averaging 6:17 (6:26, 6:18, 6:16, 6:23, 6:19, 5:58) and the final 3 was against the wind and I felt comfortable the whole way and after mile 5 I noticed I was catching up to a couple riding there bikes so I decided to pick it up a bit and pass them. The puzzled look on their faces was priceless and I don't think they were expecting a runner to pass them. The last mile being under 6 was the first sub 6 that I have ran in a long time and it was against a stiff breeze. I took about 30 seconds to regroup and finished up with 7 miles. Ran moderate for 5 and ran the last 2 at MP (6:51, 6:48) just to get a feel for it on trashed legs as they were tired at this point. Actually felt ok and the pace was not an issue at all. The hard stuff is done until the weekend and now I can have a nice couple of somewhat easy runs just to get miles in. Overall extremely pleased with how the quality sessions are going.
