Re: Kelly Moore's "New lease on life" log

It's a day off, but it was too beautiful outside to not play a little. I still plan to run that 5k on Saturday, so I'm making this my last running day before the race. It probably won't make any difference, but I would like the blisters on my toes to heal a bit!

4 x 400 meter runs @ .60 tempo: 1:31, 1:26, 1:32, 1:29. 2 minute break between rounds.

6 min run @ .60 tempo = .81 mile. Reasonable pace, hard but not too difficult. Not an all out attempt. I was curious to see if I could hold that tempo for six minutes. Very pleased that I could do so and I wasn't tapped out or unduly stressed. Toes sore.

A stand alone 6 minute mile isn't too far in the future.
