For today's workout, I decided on a tempo run. I did a slow, warmup mile jog to start. I then ran a 5 mile tempo run in about 36 minutes. The first 4 miles of the tempo were 7:00/mile or under, but the last mile took about 8 minutes. It was basically uphill the whole mile so it was a good workout. Hills and speed are the focus moving forward the next few weeks.
My nutritional findings this morning didn't help my run go any smoother. My findings are that I need to eat more than 1:40 before running. Usually my schedule allows for about 2-3 hours of time between eating and running, but this morning I didn't have that time. Consequently, my stomach wasn't happy basically the whole time I was running. I think I will be a little smarter with the food intake moving forward.
On a side note, today's run brings me up to almost 30 miles for the week. I may try to squeeze in an easy 4 miler on Sunday morning, but I am happy with my mileage right now.
