Today’s scheduled workout was a 40 minute tempo run. It consisted of 10 minute warm up, 10 minute transition to 10K pace, 10 minutes at 10K pace, and 10 minute cool down. I decided to perform the workout on the treadmill as the workout was in the afternoon and the temperature was too hot.
I was pleased with today’s effort. It was very similar to my last 40 minute tempo run with the last part of my 10K portion at 6:15/mile pace. I ran 5.489 miles in 40 minutes. Not a lot of thoughts today, as I tried to stay focus on the pace at hand. I also listened to my iPhone – so the music helped pass the time.
