I really didn’t think I had a tempo 5 mile run in me this morning, but I figured I would try anyway. I had a bit of cereal first and then set out. I have been fighting off the start of a cold for about a week and was worried I wouldn’t even be able to generate an ‘easy’ pace, but my body had other ideas. I will probably pay for it the rest of the day, but managed to get through the 5 miles a little faster than my designated ‘tempo’ pace. I even finished with a nasty hill.
