I decided during my warm up this morning to do a tempo run.
3.5 miles @ 8:00 pace warm up, 6 miles @ 7:00 pace, .5 miles @ 8:30 cool down.
The tempo pace felt easier today than in weeks past. I was planing to go 7 miles at that pace, but my stomach was not cooperating after about 4 miles. Probably due to the unhealthy meal I had last night. I need to figure out what foods my body can handle prior to my harder runs.
