Wk27 – 5.1M tempo run…

I didn’t do my tempo run on Wednesday or Thursday morning… but managed to push myself out of bed to do it on Friday morning.
 
RUN: 5.1M, 40:23 mins, 550 cals, Pace: 7:50!!
 
I think it’s the fastest I’ve ever done the route and I got a nice reward at the end of Lance Armstrong congratulating me on doing my fastest mile ever.
 
I started off steady for the first mile, averaging an 8:00 minute mile.
2 – 8:14  (7.3 mph / 11.7kph)
3 – 8:03 (7.5 mph / 12 kph)
4 – 7:51 (7.7 mph / 12.3 kph)
5 – 7:22 (8.15 mph / 13.1 kph)
6 – 6:59 (for 0.12 miles)  (8.6 mph / 13.8 kph)
 
The thought of the run wasn’t very nice, but once I got into it it was good.  Nice hard work.
 
My heart rate reached 185, 5 beats before my new 30 year old max.  (97%) and was on average 87% (165),
