No rest for the wicked

I guess I have been watching too many documentaries about the INEOS 1:59 challenge, but at 5 a.m. I set out on a tempo run across the river and back through central Umeå. While I was slower on the climb back up from town, most splits came in around 4:45 min/km without making me feel exhausted so I have good hope that I will be able to run a sub 3:30 marathon if I do get the chance in Lebanon. I have written before about the pros and cons of tempo runs but, regardless of the science, it feels good to break a bit with the usual LSD lull. Now off to work for the final interviews with the prospective PhD candidates and then a lecture about, yes, you guessed it, John Rawls.
