I woke up feeling much better than I did last Tuesday.  After seminary I headed to the island for my weekly tempo run.

I mixed in 3 sets of my running drills durning my 2 mile warm up then set off for a 6 mile tempo run...goal 39:00.  Splits went as follows: 6:28, 6:24, 6:28, 6:27, 6:26, 6:18 for a total of 38:33 for my six mile run. Then a 2 mile cool down. 

I was very pleased with this run and am glad it is behind me. I was worried if I would be able to hold that pace for a full 6 miles. It is my final tempo effort before race day. Any more fast running I do will be at mp.

Thanks DRun. I love Boston and I love being told I ran wicked fast.

Nice run... Enjoy your "Taper Time" you've earned it.

The Bostonians look at me and say - wicked fats. Pretty close to the same thing.
