Ah, the treadmill…

December 10, 2008

After a fun 5.1 mile run last night in the dark, cold and rain (34 degrees and a light mist at 8:00 PM), I hit the treadmill for 4 miles during work today.  I felt AWFUL at the 2 mile mark.  I stopped and ate a GU and did a few seconds of quick stretching and felt much better after that.  I’m thinking this might be the routine in the future.  Ran 2 miles for my warmup, stop and stretch, and then continue on.  Before 2 miles I didn’t think there was any way I could do 4 total.  After I stopped I could have easily done 5.

I hate the TM, but it’s a necessary evil.  I think my next TM run will include some intervals.  I have time for a 40-45 minute run during work, so I need to make the best of that time.  Intervals might be the way to go.
