Crazy weather! This morning, more like autumn than mid summer : cool to cold wind but plenty of sunshine. I was glad of the cool change because I had to do the longest tempo run in my program:
1.5km easy 3.5km @ ST pace 1.5km easy 1.5km @ ST pace 1.5km easy 3.5km @ ST pace 1.5km easy.
I don't know at what pace I was running the short tempo sections : the automatic 1km laps, which I should have cancelled but didn't, were overlapping the tempo laps, so I just ran those sections at what felt like a fairly hard effort. I think the session was a good one : ran hard when I had to but felt OK while doing so. I felt quite pleased when I finished, not tired, and three strides towards the end made for what I felt was a worthwhile training session. Total : 14.5km
I talk to my tomatoes! This one is called "Beefsteak"....true!
