First Tempo Run w/New GPS Watch

Yesterday was sunny and 45 degrees, which is warmer than it has been lately. Perfect day for a tempo run.
Garmin Forerunner 405

I took advantage of my new Garmin watch (see above) to track the time splits per mile. They were as follows:

(1/2 mile warm up walk)
Mile 1--10:39
Mile 2--10:29
Mile 3--10:13
Mile 4--9:45
Mile 5--9:19  (several hundred yards of sub 8 min/miles in here)
Mile 6--10:27 (wiped out, recovery)
(1/2 mile cool-down walk)

I know my times aren't the fastest, but I'm OK with that because for me it's progress. My 10k pace is 9:15 and I got close to that in mile 5.

11 weeks until the half marathon--wow!  Happy New Year's Eve!
