Thank God. I never thought I would be so happy to get on the treadmill. I was able to get in a run tonight on the treadmill as the temperature got to about 35-38 degrees F. I cannot remember the last time I got a jog in.
I did a 5 miler in 40 minutes, good for a pace of 8:00/mile. I kept the treadmill at 2.5% incline, even though Runner's World recently published an article debunking the common believe of adding incline to adjust for treadmill running compared to road running.
It was good to run again. Stretch the legs and move them quickly. On a side note, the fitness I have developed over the last couple weeks and the 10+lbs. I have lost were noticeable in the run. I felt good, not to tired, and a little lighter on my feet.
The weather is supposed to be mild for the next few days so I look forward to getting a few more runs in.
