Today I did a tempo run on the treadmill at the gym at 5:30 am. Warm up for 1 mile then 6 miles at 7:53 pace and then ran another 5 miles at my normal pace. The run today felt good. I went a few extra miles (I usually do 10 total for tempo runs) because one of my running girls is going out of town this weekend and can't do our long run so she was doing it on the treadmill and I didn't want to leave her alone :)
I went through 2 full water bottles and a pack of honey stinger energy chews. The gym is just so hot I sweat like a pig! One of my water bottles was filled with Gatorade and had a touch of caffeinated crystal light in it. Ah yeah.
