3mile tempo in 28:35 (9:13 pace)....27* no wind...gear: headband, buff, LS shirt w/ tshirt underneath, shorts, Chill Chasers, gloves, hydration belt, tunes
Weights: upper body

Beautiful morning for a run! I did a 3 mile tempo run. I STILL cant believe my overall pace for these things is under 10 minutes!!
0-1 mile: 10:10
1-2 miles: 9:00
2-3 miles 8:25!!
I cant believe my pace for that last mile as the 2nd mile definitely felt the hardest to me...
What's amazing is after that 2nd mile, I took it down to about recovery pace for 2 minutes before picking it up again...and I STILL ran it at a killer pace!! (for me at least) =)

I am loving my polartec headband and buff. Just the perfect amount of warmth...

The LS/tshirt or tank combo is still keeping me at a pretty nice temp, even below freezing!
I would usually wear my FILA tights at anything under 35 (they're thicker) but I thought I would try my Chill Chasers today (which are much thinner) and they worked great.

This was my yummy breakfast this morning. Brown rice topped w/ shredded BBQ chicken and shredded cheese. I LOVE when we have BBQ chicken sandwiches for dinner as I get to have the leftovers for brekky several mornings in a row =)

Totally not running related, but here is a picture of my sweet boy yesterday. Baby #5 and our first boy. And yes, he is every bit as onery and mischievous as he looks =)


  1. Great pace! Delicious looking breakfast! Gorgeous little boy!!! :-)

  2. Oh, he is CUTE! I bet he's got some spunk to him too :)
    27 would be pretty chilly for here. Those ear warmers must be handy. Great job keeping the pace on the tempo!

  3. Thanks guys!
    ERG-yes, he's got gobs and GOBS of spunk! =)
    27 is pretty chilly and the coldest I have run in to date, but with no wind it was quite nice. As long as I have the buff on my neck, and my ears and hands covered, then I am pretty good. I think as it dips into the teens I may need to add another layer on top though.
