Tempo Run

I took it easy yesterday (5 miles including some strides) knowing today's workout would be tough. I met up with some PPTC runners who are all focusing on trying to get in some longer workouts this winter in prep for winter half marathons or spring marathons.. It was definitely nice to have the company. We did 4 miles in Prospect Park, with the first mile being downhill and the last back uphill. My splits were fairly consistent at 6:40, 6:52, 6:53, 6:56. I started out a little too fast but overall it felt pretty good, I was able to hold my pace on the last mile, even with the hill, so I'm pretty happy with the workout. With the warmup and warmdown, I got in 8.4 for the day.
