Tempo Runs….Who Knew!?!?

14 Aug

So i have never tried a tempo run before. I know change is good, but i am afraid of speed!! sounds crazy, but i get such bad head aches after runs where i try too hard. I have had people tell me drink more, do a good cool down after, whatever anyone has told me, i have tried, and nothing works. Maybe if i work my way up to it, maybe that will help. I think i am going to try tempo running to give me something different to do, you know rather than just “running” haha!!

I used the link   http://www.mcmillanrunning.com/calculator  to see how to do it, and i don’t get it…go figure. All those numbers are like a different language to me.

So tomorrow morning will be my first tempo run, with a few girls from Moms RUN This Town. Meeting up at the park at 6AM to see how it is done!!


We did 4 1/8th of a mile sprints. Apparently you are supposed to do your “race pace” but my race pace is SLOW….so i decided to sprint it out. HAHA, after all, i did this in high school, i can do it now. Much to my surprise, i am pretty fast, but just for a VERY short distance. We were supposed to do a lot more, but called it quits and just did a lap around the park instead.

    Just run! LOL Tempo runs will build up your lung power! I can’t help you on the headaches (cuz I don’t know how to fix them either!), but if you keep the tempo run short, you probably won’t get a *bad* headache. Good luck! can’t wait to run again with you sometime!

    P.S. Change the pic on your page! LOL I have to scroll down a lot just to get to the blog entries! 🙂
