This morning I did a 6-mi tempo run. My goal was to run at about 6.2 mph. I'm still having problems getting the right BPM for my pace on Pace DJ. I am starting to think that the problem is that I run too fast for the beat when the beat is slower. I did run 6.04 mi in 58:48, which averages to 6.16 mph. However, my 1-mi splits were crazy: 6.18 mph, 6.74 mph, 6.57 mph, 6.55 mph, 5.51 mph, and 5.68 mph. I really worked hard on the last mile to slow myself down to the actual beat. I was going way too fast in the first miles, and I could feel that I was, but I couldn't seem to keep myself slowed down.
My leg didn't stop my run this time, but I started feeling it 3 - 4 miles into the run. Hopefully it will recover before the long run I want to do on Friday. I also hope I can not run so fast!
After breakfast, Bill and I biked around the condo complex. We biked about 20 miles in a little less than 2 hours. It was pretty leisurely, but fun to do. I cut it a little short because I felt my leg hurting a bit more. It seems to be OK a few hours later as I write this.
