McMillan would be proud

Spring break meant a flat 45 minute run around the squares of Savannah on Tuesday morning. I covered a lot of ground that Jeff and I had explored and walked through during the previous days of sightseeing.

On Thursday morning, I used the gym's treadmill and programmed a tough tempo run. Although I kept the incline at zero for the tempo part of the run, my speed started at 8:20 and decreased to 7:50, which is my appropriate challenging tempo zone according to McMillan's running training calculator. I was sweating up a storm and definitely sweated out some toxins--courtesy of southern fried food plus cocktails galore!

Yes it was hard work amidst the delights of vacationing, but good stuff...
