Wednesday night and I got beaten by the Dreadmill tonight.
My plan was a rather ambitious 7 miles on the treadmill, 1 mile warm up, then 4 repeats of 1 mile speedwork with 0.25 mile recoveries, then 1 mile cool down.
It’s partly to do with it being at night time and partly to do with it being on the treadmill.
I stood on the only free treadmill when I started. I was sandwiched between a guy running fast, pounding the belt, and a woman just pounding the belt really loudly with her feet. I was tempted to turn around and head straight back out. But didn’t.
I started running and even with my music full blast I could hear and feel the pounding. Arg.
I managed 4k / 2.5 miles. Mmmm. I think I’ll keep it for another day. Maybe Friday morning before work? Maybe less distance for the speed work.
Run: 2.5 miles, 22 mins (incl 0.25M walk), calories: 200.
Ave HR: 161, Max HR: 193?
Nevermind. I came home to a really good dinner. 🙂
