Working on Speed

Getting ready for Sundays 1/2. I was looking for a "flat" run to work on consistent even sub 5:00 min pace. My wife was heading for Durham so I got her to drop me off at the edge of town. Managed to run 5K at a 4:56 pace but it was 24C, no breeze and I was totally exposed to the Sun. I wanted to go further but it was just too hot. 6th K was done 2 minutes slower , talk about changing gears. I gradually worked my way up to a 5min pace and managed to run the last 8K of the run actually running. Ended up with an avg 5:24 pace...OK.

2 days after ITT and you're doing tempo runs? 16 K? It must be nice to be young! Man I jogged 4 K and was happy for that!
