Treadmill run. Kids home again. 6"-8" of snow last night, school canceled.
1.5 mile warm-up (varied pace somewhere around 8:40)
8.0 miles at tempo (marathon goal pace - 8:00/7.5mph for 4 miles, 7:56/7.6mph for 4 miles)
.5 mile cool-down (pace just shy of 9:00) (usually do a longer cool-down, but I wanted to get off this thing so bad ...)
Total run: 10 miles, 81:30
It is slower than my other previous tempo runs, but it was harder, especially mentally (physically I feel fine now, 10 minutes after the end of the run).
