I was not going to run today since it would have been my third day in a row and I am just getting back into the swing. However, I got to the garage, looked at the bike, looked at the treadmill and promptly got on the treadmill. As a compromise, I toned down the pace to 8:45/mile (slow) and only did 4miles.
It was a little slow and tedious for me at this pace, but I was glad to get in another 4 miles and feel good doing it. I also have realized over the last few years that varying my paces during different phases of training and on different days, is extremely beneficial to aerobic capacity and muscle endurance.
I plan on writing more in depth in the near future about the different paces that are important to success in running/racing.
For tonight, it breaks down like this:
At an incline of 2.5%, 4 miles at 8:45/mile-- 35 minutes
