I missed my workout Tuesday but made it up Wednesday with a TRACK workout. Yay!
I only did 6 x 400 with 2 minutes between repeats. I averaged 7:14 mile pace which is about a dime over what I am targeting for my normal track workout pace under the FIRST training plan.
The workout was a good tension breaker prior to hearing the results of school grades issued by the state. They were overall a little better for our 157 schools but the worst one still failed despite raising its scores. It was a hard day of press coordination. The coverage was not very considerate unfortunately.
Today is another day.
Tomorrow I'll run three miles at a 10K tempo pace. Saturday I think I'll wander over to the first day of the MarathonFest runners' long run site at 545 and see if I can run bandit with a 4:00 pace group for 10 miles or so. I don't know if I can go that far but I'll give it a try.

I used the first half marathon plan this past Spring. I liked it. I'll be starting the marathon program in a couple of weeks.

Good luck.
