No rain…just HUMIDITY!

Humidity won today – I opened the door to let the dog out this morning and it smacked me in the face!  I said, “no way I’m running in this” so I collected my stuff and headed once again to Anytime Fitness – my membership is coming in very handy this past week  🙂

Today’s workout was a duplicate of Monday, 30 minutes alternating 4 run, 2 walk.  I decided to try a little something different with the speed, I wanted to push it up at each run interval so I would finish the last interval at 5.5.  I usually slow down at the end of my workouts so I thought this would be a good opportunity to start slower and finish faster.

I started the first run segment at 5.1 and increased it .1 at each run interval.  By the last interval I was at 5.5, I even kept running for an additional minute before slowing down to walk…woohoo – small victory.  My overall pace actually improved by a couple of seconds too.  I’m not sure how well I’ll be able to control my pace when I’m running outside again; I’ll cross that bridge when I come to it but there doesn’t seem to be any break in the humidity on the horizon, so I may just keep going to the gym.
