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.

    Heh...with my broken Garmin, I don't have to worry about rounding it out to the nearest mile or half mile. :)

    Dailymile rounds up to 8 anyway, so you're good. Nice pace in the middle there.

    You got in some good work Lydia. 3 tempo miles in under 7:30avg is nothing to sneeze at! Good overall miles too :) I'd call that 8.

    3 tempo miles in 22:23 sounds pretty solid to me.Great run. Let the .23 go. I have the same problem but we don't always have to run pretty numbers. Besides, 7.77 is better than 6.66.
