While I planned to do a speed workout on my own around the UAH campus (based on Shannon's most excellent "Need For Speed" workouts) this evening (which I still do), I decided to go for a tempo run this morning to get some extra mileage. I haven't been running as much as I should considering that it is crunch time for me with the Georgia Jewel 100 just 5 weeks out. I headed out just after 6AM and started with an easy 1 mile warm up. As soon as I hit the one mile mark, I decided to pick up the pace without keeping an eye on my watch. My pace felt comfortable and I decided to just check my splits instead of focusing on my pace the entire time. That worked great. I ended up with just under 8 miles at a 7:40ish per mile pace and got home in time to watch the news before heading to the office. Let's see what I've got left for tonight's training run:-)

I added another run this evening but decided against a speed workout. My legs were a little heavy from the tempo run this morning, so I opted for an easy 7 miler instead. I also did get to run a couple of miles with my wife along the way. It´s so much nicer to run with your favorite running partner than to run alone.
