Last night I wrote about the fact that I was planning for my next race to be the Beat Beethoven 8 km race next weekend. Having never run a race at this distance I was unsure what my goal should be. I think I made that decision for myself tonight.
Since I did not run yesterday I decided to make tonight a tempo run. I ended up doing 8 km at tempo pace followed by a 1 km cool down. I managed to complete the tempo portion of my run in 34:28. Provided I stick to my plan, I will see next weekend if I can match or beat that time.
