To celebrate May day, I didn't run with flowers in my hair or skip around a may pole, but I did wear a red shirt and dragged myself out for a tough tempo run. The morning was gray with many clouds and higher humidity than usual. My legs felt quite good on the primarily uphill warmup.
I worked hard during the 20 minute tempo portion and pushed myself up one big hill and one medium (but longer) hill. On the flipside, there was a yahoo of a downhill; I might as well have run down a waterslide! On the downhill, I concentrated on my form and balance and used my arms.
The conclusion is that I'm happy I didn't bag this key run...Viva el tempo workouts!!
