Tempo Run

Today's training plan called for a Tempo Run: (1) mile at an easy pace, then (3) mi. at (16:07)min./mi. pace, then (1) mile at an easy pace.

DC Bike Path: 1/2 Marathon Training: Tempo Run. Dist. (5.56)mi. Pace-avg: (16:44)min./mi. Speed-avg: (3.6)mph. Speed-max: (5.8)mph. Burned: (620) Calories. Good run today.

This was one of my best runs yet. During my Jog phase I was able to keep going for (1.54) miles at a pace between (13:37) and (14:05). This was in the top end of the Fast Walk zone, according to Garmin TC, but it felt more like a slow jog; I did peak into the Slow Jog zone a couple of times during this phase. I think my lung capacity and endurance is improving. B-)

Tomorrow: Easy Run (2) mi.
