Week 9 Tempo

One of the easier runs recently: 4 mile tempo - with a 1 mile warmup/cooldown.  I wanted to practice pacing - so I decided - based on an article - to try 1 mile MP, 1 mile fast, 1 mile MP, 1 mile fast.  For MP I was aiming for 7:45 or so, for fast I was aiming for 7:10.  I ran to the Minute Man bikepath - and started uphill.  It's very gradual uphill, but it was enough to make pacing a little tricky - just going by effort, I did 7:56, then 7:31 for my 'fast' mile.  Going down, I did 7:33 for the MP and 7:01 for the 'fast'.  Maybe not the best place to practice pacing.  Anyway - the averages are about right, 7:45 for the MP and 7:16 for the 'fast' - so pretty good really.
