good Coffee Run 3.68 mi

Natilee wasn't available today, so ran instead, then rewarded myself with a latte at our favorite coffee shop. : ) Tempo-ish run, not within goal pace, but at least my legs were moving a little faster. 10 min warm up (plus leg swings - those feel good), 15 min tempo (8:44 pace), 10 min cool down.

I really dread tempo runs, but I need to incorporate them more into "off-season" running. I think if I do them more often and don't worry about the pace too much, they will get mentally easier. They are a good way to get a workout in a short amount of time too.

    Nice variation to the Friday tradition, Rose! I have a hard time pushing tempo very often during off-season-- it's just too hot. Tempo "ish" is good!

    Nice one Rose! Way to go on turning this into a run AND getting coffee after. Win win.

    I like to think of tempo runs as 'easy speed work' just because the pace is a bit slower. This mental reframing seems to help me get through them. Your tempo pace is speedy though!

    It's like taking medicine. Gotta do it but you feel better afterwards. You earned that latte, for sure.
