5 Mile Tempo

Today I did my second tempo workout of the training plan. I did 5.1 miles in just under 35 minutes. I felt good for the first 2 miles, terrible the third and then better again for the last part. But, I'm excited because even though I didn't feel great during the middle I didn't slow down and then picked it up at the end.

I did the whole thing in Prospect Park. Someone from PPTC has been busy as the mile markers are painted for the 10 mile Cherry Tree Race next weekend (I'm assuming that's what it was given that they went up to mile 9). That'll be a fun one with all those hills!

Distance: 9.3 miles
TIme: 70 min
