Monday Tempo

I was a slacker this weekend, in other words, I failed to run on Saturday or Sunday. I had taken Friday off as a rest day but my chance never materialized on Saturday and Sunday was taken up so I got to do nothing. This is why I switched Monday from a Speed Day to a Tempo day and ran 4 miles instead of 3 miles. With the Chickamauga 10 miler coming up on Saturday, I need more mileage than speed. Although I am officially going for a PR time at the race, I can't get any faster for that race in 5 days, but I can get experience at what that distance will feel like and get some quick conditioning. The race will be the most significant mileage that I have ran since May 1st when I almost went 10 miles (9.6). More on the race in a few days.

Here are my split times
