"Crappy" Tempo run

No, seriously - I almost crapped my pants today on my tempo run. I had to cut it short to be safe. It was horrible. why? I didn't eat anything weird. The only thing I can think of is that my body hasn't done any 'speed' work in so long it kind of freaked out. The good news is that my legs felt awesome! I need to get my pace straightened out because it was too fast according to the schedule. I can't tell if that's good or bad? This is what was on the schedule: 5 miles including 3 @ 9:20 This is what I did: Mile 1 = 9:37 (154 HR) warm up Mile 2 = 8:57 (174 HR) 1st tempo mile Mile 3 = 9:11 (177 HR) 2nd tempo mile Mile .9 = 8:44 (183 HR) 3rd tempo mile I didn't make it to the last cool down mile. I'll have to work that in on my run tomorrow I guess.

You're the second person today (at least of those that I read) to blog about almost crapping their pants during a run. It's an epidemic!!

Baaaahhhaaaaa. Sorry, yep, been there. My personal reaction is to piss myself...not kidding. Squeeze those buns together and get to walkin!

I'm sorry you didn't feel like you had a good tempo run in today... although, looks like you did a great job! Ok, now that you got a crappy tempo run in, it might be GREAT next week?? :-)

I HATE when that happens. I start looking for bushes and trees at that point.
