Thursday Means Tempo Run

Today's Tempo run will be in the rain but it's looking like 42°!
  • 1.5 mile warm up 
  • 3 x 2K @ 10:13 pace w/3 min @ 12:30 pace between sets
  • 1 mi cool down
April 17th and my sub-5k attempt is less than 40 days away!  40 days of desert and temptation to enter into glory!  (I think I'm taking this a bit far, don't you?)  Anyway, this time is a time of spiritual warfare.  I'll be using it to fight against my poorly-placed desire for ease, and to instill more gratefulness for the life I have been given.

You'll get it...40 days? Does that mean Easter? Easy for all of us to remember if so!

Nothing like the Lenten season to help with all that tempation and help propel you to you new 5K PR! I like your word choice of "Spiritual Warfare." Be "good" :) Ann

2nd day of Lent and I already failed. Does it count if you simply forgot??

Kate said...

Nothing like a little drama to spice things up. Tempo runs are my nemesis...hope yours goes well!

Alison said...

I think 40 days is plenty, though yes, you might be taking the Lent analogy a bit far..

Hope the run went well! (It's probably just further up my Google Reader eh..)

Sorry -- I should've added some punctuation to that to show I was joking.

Consider yourself winked at!
