7 mile trail warm-up at half marathon pace, then ended with a 3 mile tempo on dirt roads with 1st mile at 10k pace, 2nd at 5k pace, 3rd at 10k pace with last 600 meters at 3k pace (finished the last 3.4 miles in 20 min.; 6:10 pace). Overall, I'm pleased but the pace per mile for the final 3 miles was about :10 per mile faster than I like for a tempo run at it was too close to my 5:50 race pace . . . I prefer to run :30 sec. slower than race for this type of run.
