Last night I set out to do a tempo run but decided last minute to try a Progression Run (or my version of a Progression Run). Again, the beauty of my made up training plan, doing what I want when I want to, without feeling guilty. I warmed up for a mile and then each mile I tried to go 15 seconds per mile faster than the last mile. At mile 5, I only did 1/2 a mile at a 6:45 pace and then cooled down with a mile. I’m pretty proud of myself and how my progressive pacing looked:
It's by no means perfect, but it is a start. It is a fun workout and a nice change to just logging miles or being locked into speedwork at the track. I definitely think I can do more miles at faster paces next time.
