A Crazy Heartbeat and A Sticky Sweaty Tempo Run

Thursday was a bit scary. I set out to do what was to be a simple 3-mile run. A few steps into the second mile my heart started racing. It was a bit unnerving as my heart rate climbed to over 200BPM. What was even worse was that I was only doing a 9-minute pace and I just couldn't get it down. Weird, though this has happened once before (Turkey Trot 2009).

Mileage: 3.00
Time/Pace: 26:55/8:58
Avg HR: 176 (creepy!)

Today was hot and sweaty! No better time for a tempo run eh ? It's been awhile since I've done any type of speed work, so this was a bit tough. It was about 78, sunny and 90% humidity or so. 5 miles total with wu and cd. I was shooting for 3 miles at a 7:45 pace. I made it!

Mileage: 5.00 (with wu and cd)
Time/Pace: 44:32/8:54
Avg HR: 162 (Ah, much better)
Tempo Mile Splits (3): 7:43, 7:44, 7:46
