Final workout before Space Coast half - 5 mile tempo targeting around half marathon pace.
Splits: 5:40, 5:34, 5:33, 5:34, 5:29
Was kind of a mess today, felt like trash from the start of it and it was one of those days where the heart rate just goes nuts, like it immediately went high even on the warmup. I think a lot of it has to do with my shins, which have been tightening up badly during workouts to the point where it feels like it messes up my landing and I can't hold form together. Had to take a 30 second break at about 3.6 into the tempo to stretch it out, super frustrated about that. Other than that the workout was executed fine, it just didn't feel good today. All things considered, I'm glad I was still able to pretty much hit the pace I wanted. Just gotta try to fix the shin problem in the next week so I will be ready to rock it on race day.
