Do you need a good tempo workout? This morning’s 7 mile tempo workout was a great one for me! I definitely worked hard, maybe a little bit too hard. I enjoy pushing myself so a run that includes a push and a rest and another push is really fun! You may be asking, “What was so hard about it?” Well, this is what it looked like:
1st mile – easy
2 and 3 -medium tempo
4 – easy
5 and 6 – medium tempo
7 th mile – easy
I ate 1/2 a banana before I left and then I used a gel between mile 3 and 4. I used the gel because I was hungry and I felt like it may give me some needed energy. Once the kids go back to school, I will have a full breakfast before I train and won’t need to use a gel on these runs. Until then, I will continue use one.
My favorite thing to do after a hard workout is to eat a big breakfast! I love breakfast foods. This morning I had eggs, strawberries and a pancake with peanut butter on it (I don’t like syrup). I have a hard time eating just one pancake, I love, love, love pancakes.
