Thunder and lightning. All morning. No way I could run safely outside before going to work, so I finally drove to Building 1 to run on the treadmill. I was pressed for time so decided to make it short but make it count.
Set the treadmill at 1% incline for the entire run
warmed up one mile at 8:34 pace
5 miles at 7:30 pace--target marathon pace maybe? Felt harder than it should have at first but then got easier as time went by. I am just not used to nor do I like running on the treadmill
1 mile at 6:40 pace--felt hard at first but was getting into a groove at the end. checked my heart rate at the end--178. Geez.
.5 mile cooldown.
I really hate the treadmill. To me it is mentally defeating and I have a hard time getting into the groove.
Stretched a little, drove to post 11, showered, and got on the truck. Now I'm at work and it's still raining--haven't heard much thunder though.
