Tempo Run on day 12 of this schedule

Ive decided tempo runs should only be done on flat ground, tracks, or treadmills. Its incredibly difficult to maintain a pace Im aiming at when Im going up and down hills and complicate that with a wicked headwind and what you have is effort without the pace reward. SIGH. Im trying to be content with knowing I put loads of effort into that run but the wind sucked all the content out of me.

3 km tempo run with a target of 5:55 mins per km (hardly) 1 km warm up and cool down for a total of 5 km in 33 minutes.

Have a bit of a cold brewing; im sure running in that dampness and wet was good for that. With the Benelyn and the 3 Cold FX I took this morningIve this feeling in my throat that I cant swallow and my stomach is a little upset (snot? LOL). I hope this one is fought off quickly.
