02/20/2014 PM Run

It's almost inconceivable.  I was actually able to run today, second day in a row.  Simply a miracle.  I got on the treadmill this evening and turned out another 5 mile run in 40 minutes.  The pace was 8:00/mile obviously.  However, even though pace, distance, and time all remained the same as yesterday, I did make one major change.

I used a pyramid setup for my incline throughout the run.  The setup was as follows:

Mile 1-  8:00/mile @ 2% incline
Mile 2-  8:00/mile @ 3% incline
Mile 3-  8:00/mile @ 4% incline
Mile 4-  8:00/mile @ 3% incline
Mile 5-  8:00/mile @ 2% incline

I liked this workout as it kept my mind off the treadmill and challenged my legs without adding a great amount of time.

Tomorrow, a day off from running and most likely a bike session to recover my legs and a short, intense workout.
