I made it out for my tempo run, and was able to push it pretty hard for me. I had planned on 9 miles, with 7 at about 7:15 or so. I headed out on my usual 5.5 mile loop, and tried to decide what to do to add on a few miles. The first 2 miles were good, with George Street twice, I still kept it to about 7:30. I felt stronger as the run went on, and I kept dropping the pace, till I got to about 7. I finished with a 6:40 for mile 10, and overall average pace of 7:10. Now I'm hoping to keep the Fast Friends race to about 29 or 30 minutes. It should be a fun and challenging course.
