My 10k PR is 46:26, which is a 7:29 pace, and my target tempo pace for today was a 7:21 pace. I had tossed around the idea of running a 10k race this weekend, but decided that I didn’t want to reduce my miles enough to make a strong showing at the race.
- 1 mile w/u – 9:35
- 10k split – 45:14 (7:17 pace)
- 0.78 mile [rest of the 7 mile tempo] in 5:25 (6:57 pace)
- 1 mile c/d – 9:26
It was a fun little exercise, and I’m happy that I have my legs back under me after having a rocky week of workouts last week.
