An Awesome 14K Tempo Run!

Tonight was a mild 6C/43F outside when I got home so I suited up and hit my 14K/8.7M route. I was fired up and full of energy, probably from all the desserts that I ate yesterday. I decided to try to maintain a 5:30/K (8:51/M) pace, about 30 seconds faster than my planned marathon pace and just under my half-marathon race pace. I made it about half ways before total darkness set in, but flipped my headlamp on and kept my foot on the throttle. The air was fresh with a little misty rain, but it felt good as I wound my way home. My average pace for the 14K run – 5:28/K (8:48/M). All and all a motivating, invigorating, awesome run!

Tomorrow night I need to head to the pool and do some laps, as I missed last night do to other commitments. Happy training!

Congrats on a great run. And I soooo understand the overdosing on sugar. I ate enough yesterday to last four days.
looks like it's going to warm up here this weekend - looking forward to running outside for a change.

I'll be thinking of you - thursday is pool day over here, too.
Very good performances (dessert and tempo run)! Keep on with that pace (tempo run of course)and the marathon will come easier.
