The last few weeks I have been trying to push my tempo on some of the runs in an effort to improve my overall speed. Today I decided to do a repeat of my 10 miler that I ran at the beginning of the month to test my training.
The temperature was 16 °C, 6 °C warmer than my first 10 miler, so I factored this in with my results.
I repeated the same course, and ended up being 6 minutes faster than at the beginning of the month. At this point I welcome any improvement, so call it a success.
Average pace on March 3: 6:44/km (10:50/mi)
Average pace today: 6:16/km (10:06/mi)
