Run-of-the-mill treadmill dash.
Time: 55 minutes
Distance: 7 miles
Effort: Some hard
Lots of new snow and single digit temps did little for my motivation to run outside, so I once again hit the treadmill at the rec center.
Did 2 miles at 8:27 w/u, then 1x1 mile at 5:42, 2x800 meters at 5:15, 1x1 mile at 6:58 and the rest was easy c/d and recovery between the intervals.
The first 5:42 mile hurt. Wasn't feeling whippy today, which is why I shifted to the 800s. I upped the pace for them, but was happy to not being doing miles. I slept poorly last night, which is what I'll attribute my sub-par effort to. I'm working on a list of other excuses for future use.
Left heel felt good on the run and just a touch of soreness later.
