Tempo Run - 9 miles

Another scheduled tempo run. The schedule goal was 10k pace + 40 seconds, or 8:47/mi for me. I didn't come close. I think at this point, I can't worry about pace anymore and should just work on getting in my miles and improving as much as I can. I still have 6 1/2 weeks until The Ave, and that's what training is for, right?

Anyway, it was also quite warm. I wanted to go out around 10:30, but wasn't able to get out until almost noon. By the time I was done, it was almost 70 degrees! I'm just not acclimated to the warmer weather yet, my forehead was sweating like crazy, sweat getting into my eyes. Still, it was a beautiful day.

Mile 1: 8:47.76
Mile 2: 9:00.59
Mile 3: 9:16.95
Mile 4: 10:01.15
Mile 5: 10:25.19
Mile 6: 9:46.95
Mile 7: 11:24.26
Mile 8: 10:23.70
Mile 9: 9:16.04

1:28.28, 9:49/mi, 1183 calories burned
