Evening run, sunny, breezy, Temp 85'
I decided to insert a 3 mile tempo run in my run. I ran the 3 miles @ about 6:40 avg. and for some reason I thought I'd end the run with a hard mile. It always sound fun to do a hard mile before and after the mile but during the mile it's not near as fun. I ran the hard mile in 5:55. The mile was difficult and wore me out. It may have to do with working all day or running hard in the sun?
I thought I'd do a trial relay exercise by running this evening then tomorrow morning and then at lunch to simulate somewhat the same times I'll be running the relay. Hopefully, by tomorrow afternoon I'll still be feeling ok.
Time 51:05, Mile Avg. - 7:06
