Tempo Run - 6.2 miles

Today was my tempo run, this would be #4 of the FIRST training. Only 14 more to go! Hehe. It was supposed to be 1 mile easy, 4 miles @ tempo pace (8:22 - 8:37), 1 mile easy. Right afterwards I thought I did horribly, but in retrospect other than walking a few times in the middle, it wasn't too bad.

Mile 1: 9:10.23
Mile 2: 8:23.75
Mile 3: 8:48.05
Mile 4: 11:45.96
Mile 5: 9:00.24
Mile 6: 14:50.49

Yes, I more or less walked the last mile.

So I was getting down on myself for not doing well, but I realized that last night I only got 3 hours' sleep. That might have had something to do with it, along with working my legs pretty hard at the gym yesterday. In the end, I think I did pretty well.

Tomorrow I'm back in the gym.
