My last run was Tuesday night with the RFG girls at the middle school. I had every intention of working out Wed & Thurs doing some sort of cross-training but alas that didn’t happen. So I made sure I got up this morning and went to Anytime Fitness to get three miles in on the treadmill (p.s. I joined!). After I finished I realized it would’ve been a perfect day to run outside since the temps reached 72 today – duh! But I’m glad I got my run in early because I’m sure I would’ve found some reason not to do it later. And as much as I find the treadmill boring, I like it for keeping my pace even. When I run outside my pace is all over the place (anywhere from 4.7-5.1 according to my C25K program) so the treadmill makes me keep an even tempo.
I still needed to take a few walk breaks but I tried to keep them above 4.0 and less than 2 minutes. My overall pace is just slightly better than my last several runs, not sure if that means I’m getting better or I just had a good day! lol!
