It was supposed to be: 1 mile warm up. 35 mins at 6:35 pace. 1 mile cool down for 7 total.
I did: 1 mile warm up 7:25 pace. then 3 tempo @ 6:28, 6:39, 6:31. Then I had a hissy fit and did a 7:02 pouty mile. I had intended on just jogging to the car at that point. But then I said, I feel better...and did 6:40 and 6:44. Not committing to speed or a recovery pace.7 miles total.
I can run 6:50 all day and night but dropping 15 seconds freaks me out. I almost have to be mad to run at that pace.
I am VERY lucky to have a running partner that puts up with this herky- jerky-emotional -wtf are we doing now-pacing...and can tell me stories the entire time and even say, "I know you can't respond" ...LOL Thanks D!
But enter the Running Gods:
