More speed work
After looking out the window at another cold, wet, gloomy day I decided to head over to my fitness center again this afternoon. I started off with a 7 mile, 20 minute ride on the recumbent bike and then hopped on the treadmill for a run. For the first couple miles I kept the speed on 8. When I reached the 3rd mile I realized that I didn't feel like being on the hamster wheel any longer so I kicked the pace up to 9 for the entire last mile and even increased it to 10+ for the last half mile or so, giving me a finishing time of 20:30 for 3 miles. I was pretty happy about that since I was originally planning to go longer and made the adjustment during the middle of my run. I finished my workout with some situps, pushups, and dumbbells.
