    Tempo Question – I am in Week 12 and struggling to hit pace on my tempo runs. My strength sessions (versions of mile repeats at this point) are going well and I can hit them fine. The tempo runs, that’s another story.

    Tempo is always a struggle for me over speed and by Week 10, I was hitting my goals right on the money. Now, this has been two weeks and while I’m out there putting in my best effort, my legs are having difficulty turning over fast enough (and the wind hasn’t been doing me any favors).

    Did I bite off more than I can chew with my goal? Is this just cumulative fatigue hitting me — keep soldiering through? Thoughts?
