Got on the treadmill tonight a bit earlier than normal tonight – maybe a bit too early. Running that close to supper made me a feel a bit sluggish but overall not too bad, I just needed to make sure I didn’t push too hard and lose it!
I basically did 1 min at 7 mph followed 1 minute at 8 mph – I did this alternation for a few miles and then started bumping the 8 mph portions up to 2 minutes at a time. At the half hour mark I walked for a minute and then got back into alternating 7 and 8 finishing up with the last 2:34 at 8.
A solid run.
Right after the run I hopped in the pool for a half hour with the wife and kids and did a couple sets of swimming pool resistance exercises to finish up.
Minutes after that I got called into work – not bad timing there!
I will continue ramping up the mileage from here – maybe 6 miles tomorrow and will most like shoot for a half marathon distance over the weekend and possibly a 3 hour run. I will play it by ear but I am feeling good and will pushing until I start to see warning signs from the body.
