Speedier

So how was the mid-week tempo session after the rigors of the weekend? Pretty darn good, since you ask. 4 x 10 minute tempos with 2 minute rests. Target pace 7:20. Actual pace: 7:17, 7:11, 7:06, 7:03. Average 7:10. So I pushed it a little bit, but the perceived effort was no more than last week when I hit the target exactly. I think some of this is coming from improved form. I’m getting the posture and footstrike right without having to think about it so much. So should I recalibrate my paces? Not yet, according to Jack D. I should just let it get easier for a bit before I ratchet up. On Saturday I’ll be doing a 2-hour marathon pace run. Target pace is 7:50, (subject to mid-run adjustment, ahem).

    Great tempo session! You knocked it outta the ballpark. Best of luck on the MP run. So a 2-hour MP run, that comes out to 15.3 miles at goal pace – that’s a long one. Looking forward to reading all about it.
