Tempo Day

Today I did a 6 mile tempo run in Prospect Park. It was a perfect day for it, nice and cool and sunny. I debated running over to the top of the hill and starting the workout there so I'd only have to do the hill once, but I thought that was way too lame. Instead just warmed up and then started at the first mile marker I came to from the Cherry Tree run - I ended up doing miles 1-7 from the race course. My splits were pretty even, all from 6:55 (up the hill) to 6:47 with the last mile at 6:39. Its very encouraging to be able to do a run like that on a hilly course on my own. I must be doing something right!

Distance: 10.5 miles
Time: 79 min
