The need for speed.
This morning - 25 minutes of Si6
Dreadmill - 21:26
Mile 1 - 12 minutes
Mile 2 - 9:26
Yes, you read that right...Mile 2 - 9:26
I don't know why, but I wanted to see how fast I could run a mile on the treadmill. I always get so lazy on the treadmill and rarely run less than an 11:00 minute pace. For some reason it just feels so much harder on the treadmill. So, I decided to see how long I could maintain a 10 minute pace on the treadmill. I figured maybe a 1/2 mile, possibly a bit more. But, a 1/4 mile passed. Then a 1/2 mile. I felt pretty good, so I sped up a little. Then a little more. By the end of the 2nd mile, I was sweating buckets and my heart was racing, but it felt good. 9:26. For me, on the treadmill or off, that's damn good. Next, I cooled down with slow jog for about a minute and then a walk for about 2-3 minutes.
