Reid (Tempo)


3 mile warm up, 4 mile tempo, 3 mile cool down

Low 80s, little wind, sunny

My legs felt heavy on my warm up, and I knew this was going to be tough. Again, out too fast (5:36) and the hot weather didn't help much, but still under 6:00 pace. Need to back off on the first mile. I used to be able to run like a metronome; I just had to swing my legs and I could hit a pace, but I'm back to learning how a certain pace feels. Just give it time.

The cool down was painful. For the first time I can remember, I wanted to walk on a cool down, and that was only a half mile into it. But I forced myself to run the whole three miles. Ouch!
