Aside from the Virginia trip, the highlight of the week was the Wednesday tempo session. Progressed from last week's 6 miles of T-pace by adding a 7th mile. The local fast chica Tara joined me for the run. Four 1.5 mile sets, followed by one extra mile.

13mi total (about 1:42)
3mi warm-up
7mi @ T-pace (4x 1.5mi & 1x 1.0mi; with 2min recoveries)
3mi cool-down

Splits: 10:06/9:50/9:53/9:52/6:35
Average pace: 6:36

After the first two intervals, Tara dropped the pace down to her tempo pace of 6:20. I did not have to think much as she just pulled me along. Thank goodness for training partners!

Now only three weeks left until MO.

Wow! A "practice" run of 13 miles. That's really amazing.
