Training Log - Tuesday, July 13, 2010
I needed a rest day Monday to be ready for today's tempo run. Richard and I met up at my house at 6AM to follow our 100 mile training plan and today's session called for a 7 mile tempo run. Richard managed most of the run, which wasn't bad considering that he's still recovering from turning his ankle last week. I managed to maintain the goal pace for the entire run and stayed just above55 minutes for the run. My pace was slightly faster than last week's first tempo run and my average heart rate was significantly lower. Maybe I am getting fitter and faster;-) Tomorrow calls for speedwork. I am trying to make myself look forward to it. I am one of those people that generally doesnotlook forward to it so I am trying "positive thinking" to get myself in the right state of mind. Hopefully it will work.
