It was a good tempo run today. Started with a mile warm up, then started out. The goal was to go 4 miles at just under 6 minute pace, after that the plan was to just see how I felt for the next two miles. Going out, the first 3 miles of tempo felt great, then when I turned around, there was a stiff headwind, that I of course didn't notice when it was at my back. I fought through it for a mile, and finished the tempo run with an average pace of 5:56. I just jogged the next mile, then I did one more mile at tempo pace mostly just focusing on being mentally strong into the wind. I ran that mile at just under 6 minutes as well. It was a good workout, I defiantely need to do more things like this. I was a little dissapointed in my mental strength during the initial tempo run, but I'll work on it, good things are coming!
