I quite enjoyed the run today, even though the weather was kinda dreary. But temps were fairly mild and the air didn't seem too grungy. Warmed up with 10 minutes XT (S/E) and 1 mile on the treadmill. Then did a 2-2-2-2-2 workout. 2 miles easy, then 2 miles around HM to 10K pace, then 2 minute jog rest, then 2 more miles at HM-10K pace, then 2 miles easy cooldown.
Like last week I tried to not pay so much attention to the garmin, but rather tried to focus on keeping good form, breathing and relaxation. During the tempo I had this mantra in my head...."Pants on the ground, pants on the ground, lookin like a fool w/yo pants on the ground.....". If you saw Idol last night you know what I'm talking about.
Splits/HR for tempo miles were 6:44/176, 6:41/182, (2 min jog rest - 9:26 pace), 6:35/181, 6:30/187.
