Tempo Pace

I took an unplanned day off yesterday because I had a disorganized and chaotic day at work. Today I felt great for my tempo paced running, so I think the day off was a good thing. I hardly ever have a day where I don't do any training at all, so when I do take one of those days it feels like such a nice rest.

Today I did a 2 mile warm up on the treadmill, then 3 repeats of 1 mile at 7 minute pace with a little jog between each, then a nice cool down. I'll do weights and core work tonight.

I'm happy with how my training is going so far. I have to keep building on it in preparation for Massanutten, but I also have to be careful not to get injured or mentally burnt out. So far, so good.

  1. Nice tread run and congrats on last weekend's snowshoe race, the snowshoe events look like a lot of fun if only there where a couple a bit closer to Boston I’d be there for sure. Wish I could run Kingsman Farm but I’ll be down the Cape for the Hyannis Marathon. Anyway maybe we can plan a group VT 4,000 fters run this summer.
