8/30/12 Training

Today’s training called for a 45 minute tempo run.  Due to traveling and the heat of the afternoon, I opted to run this workout on the treadmill at night.  I started out conservatively and gradually worked up to a steady 10K race pace before returning to a jog for a cool down.  In the 45 minutes, I was able to run 5.923 miles.

During the run, I watched the last part of the Chiefs vs. Packers pre-season game.  After watching this game (and the prior pre-season games as well), I am worried about how the Chiefs will do this season.

This weekend’s runs reflect the lower mileage week — six miles at marathon race pace on Saturday and 12 easy miles on Sunday.  We’re forecasted to receive some much-needed rain from the hurricane tomorrow and Saturday, so Saturday’s run could be a wet one.  Sunday’s forecast looks hot, so I hope to get it in early in the morning.
