Tempo Run for Jones 10 Miler

Looking for 7:15 - sub 7 miles 3-9. The rest I'll keep between 8 and 9. Look, I don't really know if this type of workout is a 'tempo' run or not. Training is not what it was 1 year ago, and I'm honestly not sure if this is good or bad.

Long Night Run

This ought to be my last long run before Jones 10 miler. There is not enough time, with school and work, to go into detail on these things as I used to. All my obsessive energy is directed into Mechanical Engineering issues. I'll continue to post this stuff though, just a map and odd notations. My longer runs have been feelling great, but I'm not sure I'm running enough to streamline my form. My posture in general benefits from running, and not so much from throwing boxes around at FedEx. The foot is still a nagging problem at times. My entire gait is a matter of focus. So, workouts like this smooth things out. Tough logistics though, and quite a wallop in an already physically demanding life. Test driving a camelback, a skiing model that was a christmas gift.

Looking for a night run, icy conditions, low traffic. This has a new hill and decent climbs. I began thinking a 6 mile out and back would be appropriate for today, somehow the square of 6. Really, I just need to get out and run. It has been 3 days since my last workout, and three days off before that one. School, family, the foot, haven't got it all figured out yet. Not just logistics of time, recovery from bodily and mental stress is demanding. Here I go for a dozen.
