Today is the second day of a new training plan I am working through. It is a 10k training plan that will include ramping up my mileage as well as some tempo runs that should help me pick up the pace along the way.
Today I was supposed to run at 8:00/mile pace but my first mile was about 7:45 and my next few were... well... faster. I know that if I want this training plan to do what it is capable of doing I must try to stay at the paces that have been advised. However, it just does not feel like I am pushing that hard right now, even at sub 7:45 pace, so I will just need to keep a close watch on how I feel.
Distance: 4.14 Miles
Pace: 7:32 / Mi
Route: Big Rock to Bench
