I wanted to start doing some speed work again. I decided to do a 4 mile tempo run- weather was 70 deg and sunny. Since I am currently the only operational member of the Logan FRB, I did my workout solo. Did Young Ward loop. Ran 2.8 miles warm up at 7 min pace, then started my tempo. I wanted to be at or below 6:00 pace. First mile was 6:00 dead on, mile 2 and 3 were both 5:59, last mile was 6:03. By the end I could definitely feel that I had done a marathon 10 days earlier, but was overall happy with the workout. 4.2 miles home at 6:55 pace, giving a total workout of 11 miles in 1:12:49 (6:37 avg). Easy day tomorrow.
Marci was having pretty severe labor pains last night. Bubba Gump is due in 2 weeks, which means she could appear any day. I'm looking forward to that, partly since I will take a whole week off work and can spend it with my family and running!
