I treid a tempo run again today – Tuesday is now known as Tempo day in the Greer household. The plan called for 30 minutes, and I thought I’d start with Week 1 from the runners world plan, which is 3 mins fast (which I take to mean the pace I want to get to) followed by 1 min slow. It took me a little while to get started and I am a bit annoyed with myself because I should know by now that it takes me 15 minuets to get my legs warmed up and my breathing right. I didn’t manage the pace for the whole 3 minutes once I was warmed up, but the last 4 splits aren’t too bad; as abradypus pointed outat least there is a marked difference between fast and slow!
Overall I think this attempt was more succesful than the last one in February, I just have to ensure that I warm up for 15 minutes in future not 5!
Here’s the split breakdown:
