Tempo run

Posted on: 13 Feb 2008

Got out on my own at lunch time for a 5.75 mile tempo run (yes Nick I agre going to hundreths of a mile is a bit OCD but MapMyRun said 5.75 so that's what I'm taking).

Set off in very warm sunshine and pushed along around 8 minutes a mile.  I'd worked out a route from work that looped around and up and down and up the varuious hills around Saville Moor in Halifax and enjoyed it. 

Finished in 46:42 so around 8:10 pace overall but a lot quicker on the down and flat and steady on the long up hills.  I'm on target for another 50+ this week before an easier week next week with a mini taper to the Blackpool Half.
