Because of the Springbank Half Marathon on Sunday, Coach John wanted us to just take it easy on our tempo run tonight. The goal was to go our easy on a 6 mile (total) run, and then turn it up to Half pace for the last 1.75 miles (at the tunnel). Here are my splits:
4:52 (pace for 340 m.)
4:23 (pace for 310 m.)
The average pace was exactly 5:00 per K -- and I felt comfortable the entire way. We were carrying on a conversation the way down to the turn around, and I felt good on the way back. A successful run!
