That's right! Twice this week, I've run on the treadmill. Monday, I ran there because of the rain. Yesterday, because I didn't wake up in time to beat the heat. Let's just say that I've spent enough time on the treadmill this week and I'm okay with not seeing it for another month.
Monday, I tempoed. 8 miles total. 2 easy (around 6.7mph) 2 at 7:40 pace (7.8 mph), 2 at 7:20 pace (7.2 mph), 2 easy (6.7 mph). Total time was roughly 65 minutes.
Yesterday, my schedule called for 7 easy. I could not get warmed up for the life of me. I wanted to hop off of that treadmill and call it quits the entire time I was running those first 4 miles. Somehow, after mile 4, I warmed up. I ended up running 7.2 miles in 1:00:28. This is much faster than my easy pace is supposed to be, but I just wanted to get the run finished.
Now, it's Friday! :) I have another 18 miler on deck in the morning. My schedule reads: 12 easy, 6 at 8:10 pace. I'm secretly shooting for a 19 miler, but we shall see!
