Another Saturday tempo - a chance for my virtual garmin partner to gain his revenge! After a four mile warm up where I managed to maintain a decent pace of 6-30 miling I repeated the session of two weeks ago with a four mile tempo back from Lazenby to Marske.
I set the Garmin a target pace of 5-56 per mile and set off with the intention of smashing it to the ground! Miles of 5-42, 5-35, 5-33 and 5-33. 22-26 for the four mile course it was a full 20 seconds quicker than the same run two weeks ago - more sign of progress! With this being my third hard session of the week at the end of a 53 mile week I hope I will reap the benefits of a few easier days this week as I sharpen up for the Great North 10k next week.
Now it's time to get suited and booted and off to racing of a different kind! York races here I come :)
