Tempo does it 5

As you can see, my self inflicted schedule called for a six mile tempo run, and I did five.  I thought it wise to continue to not push myself especially since I'm supposed to be going from 30 miles last week to around 40ish this week.  I believe I'm going to cut some more miles off runs this week so that I don't do more than 36-38, which is still asking for trouble.

The Hanson's book sets weekly tempo runs at 5, 5, 5, 8, 8, 8, 9, 9, 9, 10; that jump from 5 to 8 is a killer, so I decided to ramp it with 4 (last week), 5, 6, 6, 7, 7, 7, 8, 8, 9.  I know: Here I go thinking I know more than the experts...that, or I'm just a wimp.
