Building a faster tempo run

Today’s tempo run went very well. I jogged for about 10 minutes, then took off at a pretty good pace for a little more than 8 minutes, covering a mile and a quarter in that time. I did tire out after those 8 minutes and walked for a minute or so, but I was really pleased with the results. Next week, my goal will be to keep the high pace up for a longer period of time. I’ll be shooting for 10 minutes of accelerated running.
