The first workout of this training cycle with 4 miles at tempo pace. It's a gray morning with saturated gray air. The humidity is up and i've not run fast for what seems like forever. The blisters don't bother me at least. The first couple miles feel very hard but after warming up and working through it, it feels good and i finish feeling like i could've run a lot more at that harder pace. The pop of color at the end was a nice beacon. Focus on whatever will pull you through that workout.
