Tempo Workout

I had a good tempo workout today. Not much interesting to report. I was really struggling to keep the pace at the end of the 20 minute fast portion of my run, but I managed. I'm really curious to do my 5k test this weekend. I hope it goes well. Then, I have to find an actual 5k (I might settle for a 5 miler) to run at the end of this schedule.

Funny enough, I scheduled my 5k training around my marathon training and just assumed I would be able to find a 5k to run at the end. No luck so far. I'm going to keep looking though. If I can't find it, I'm going to run the Ephrata Firecracker Run around the 4th of July. It's a 5 miler though, so I'd rather find a 5k to run.

Run recap- 10 minute warmup, 8:00 or under for the 20 minute tempo part, 3:45 cool down
3.92 miles, 33:45, 8:37 pace

8:00 or under for the 20 minute tempo part? Nice one!! Looks like things are coming together nicely....

Thanks man... I'm also off to a good start with the better eating (I'll be it only two days).
