The tempo run today was kind of a debacle. It seems like the first week at a higher mileage is always a bit of a flop. Today we moved from a 2 mile tempo to a 3 miler. It messed with my brain a little and I was overwhelmed. I woke up stiff and a little sore. I'm guessing it is from karate Monday night because I can't think of anything else. We ran 2.5 miles to warm up then started the "comfortably hard" portion. I'm not sure I ever got comfortable. There were a number of cars and it kept throwing me off. I had a hard time focusing and things fell apart when we crossed the rail road track. Stephen pulled ahead of me and stayed that way for the rest of the tempo. I walked a couple of times the last mile. Stephen kept the timer rolling and said I ran the three miles in 22:23. After that, we ran home. I was hoping for 2.5 miles to warm down, but we had kids calling and didn't go around the block to finish out 8 miles. That anal retentive side of me is trying to let that last little bit go! I'm following up with ITB Rehab Routine and the standard core routine, twice.
