Picking up the tempo

Today was another great afternoon to run.  It was a little warmer than yesterday but still very pleasant and low humidity.

I ran 10 miles with 4 miles at half marathon pace.  My splits were right on target, 8:05, 8:07, 8:02, 8:08.  Felt real good about the workout.  The last time I attempted a tempo run the temperature was in the 90s.  The 15 degrees really makes a difference.

    Yeah, this cool weather is an unexpected treat. 15F makes a huge difference. I wish it would hold till next Monday for my marathon but, alas, it looks not to be. Upper 70s and humid by race end.

    Nice to target St. Jude…pretty sure you’ll get cool weather!
