2nd Tempo 2x 15 Minutes at Marathon Pace

I decided to pull this tempo on the roads vice going to the track based on Mike’s suggestion. Bowker Flats in 15:00 and 14:57 with some effort on both.

Key differences:

  1. Did not run in lightweight trainers
  2. A continuous run
  3. Gatorade mix, keep the water from freezing
  4. On the roads and not the track

Yesterday: noon,39,fair, stroller, 8.0m 57:44
Training Today: am,18,fair, BH,BF,Haynes,12.5m 1:23:08


  1. Awesome speed in cold weather. Nice job.

  2. Good workout Mark, nice to see that you're getting in some quality. I'm sure I'm going to be doing similar efforts in the next few weeks... it'll be interesting.

  3. I like the idea of doing these in the trainers too, since it will just feel easier when you lace up the lightweight shoes. If I get on the track once a week it seems plenty enough for me, though the roads here are clear year-round.

  4. I much prefer doing something like this on the road as well. I don't like to do anything over a mile in a track workout.
