Tempo Tuesday

Great tempo run today except for the fact that when I got home my Garmin totally went dead ... as in won't turn on or charge.  It may have finally ran it's last mile with me! (more on that later)

            Course:  Downtown LS Out & Back
                Miles:  12             
      Total Time:  1:28:25
        Avg Pace:  7:05/mile for last 10 miles
            Avg HR:  168
         Workout:   Tempo Run
               Temp:  62 Degrees, Humidity 65%, Wind 4SSE

Last 10 mile paces after 2 mile warm up:
7:53     7:23     7:05     7:03     7:03     7:02     6:53      6:53     6:52     6:49

All in all a pretty good run for where I'm at right now.  Felt strong and smooth and never really had to "dig in" and push to keep pace.  Probably could have been a little faster, but for now it's fine.
... be great today!


  1. Fantastic Tempo Jim! You are very ready for that sub-3. Tempo runs are the way to go to get you there.

    What kind of Garmin do you have? I have the 205 and it dies on me quite frequently. Once I reset it it is usually good to go for a few months.

  2. Wow! Nice time! Sorry to hear about your watch. Hopefully you can figure something out!

  3. Dude, you are fast! Great tempo run.

    By the way... want to say thank you for your comment on my marathon post. Coming from you, it means a lot!

  4. Great pacing! Perfect, in fact.

  5. Feeling strong is a great way to feel. Running well Jim.
