#trainingrun – double run day – 7.5 miles in 1 hour at 1% tonight and 2.09 miles in 19:06 this morning – Sept 25, 2013 (Wednesday)

216.5 this morning and 216.5 after the run this evening.

Weight is looking better – looks like should hit a new low tomorrow morning, well unless I eat a whole cake tonight or something – surprisingly no cravings for sugar though so that is a big positive!

Run this morning was a touch slower than yesterday but still felt really good – although I couldn’t figure out what the hell the noise was about 6 am this morning…turns out it was my alarm but it took longer than it should have to register in brain.  Was very nice out as well so it was nice to get out and get some fresh air while stretching my legs.

Tonight, I started with a 0.16 mile walk in 2.5 minutes at 10% incline as a warm up.  The actual run was very good for the first half hour – 16 minutes at 7.5 mph, 1 minute walk and then 13 minutes at 8 mph.  During the second half I was still on track for over 7.5 miles in the hour I had set for myself but then the treadmill breaker tripped at about 43 minutes in.  I must have done a funny step or something to trigger the breaker trip because once I reset it the belt kept wanting to drift to the left side of the deck and I had to pause the run a few times to try to adjust the belt and I think I got it back to normal by the end but it broke up the last couple miles – so while the 7.5 miles happened in 60 minutes it was probably closer to 62-64 minutes in real time.  Oh well – the fun of a treadmill.  Felt good after though so that is nice – so far things seem to be going well with the double runs.
