Tempo run. 1 mile warm up, 4 tempo miles, 2 miles cool. Finished at a totally even 7 miles, which is totally weird. I also felt really bad about these splits until I read the weather report when I got back, winds at 22 MPH gusting up to 31 MPH.
The first 2.5 miles were with the wind at my back (and the first one, being a warm up, was purposefully slow obviously) and then it was headwind for the next 4. If I was smarter, I would’ve ran my loop in the opposite direction. I entertained myself by composing bad running-related poetry, holding back vomit, and singing Against the Wind in my head. Fuck yeah, Seger.
