The forecast for my 6 mile tempo run this afternoon:
With wind gusts in the 30s and a steady rain I had a couple sections that felt like I was running into a fire hose.
I persevered, met my goal time, and finished wet, cold, and satisfied.
Tempo runs are my favorite because:
- manageable distance
- 10k or better race pace
- don’t need to carry food or fluids
- see a lot of trail/road quickly
