2008-05-12 Treadmill Run

Started at 10:00/mile, then increased the speed by 0.1mph every 0.1 mile. (I actually did 0.5mph per 0.5 miles for the first two miles or so, then switched to 0.1mph/0.1mile ... same effect.) Much like the old "shot of beer per minute for an hour" trick, this workout is easy at the start and hard at the end :-).

My last 0.1 mile was @ 7:03/mile, but I felt great. HR was something like 173 at the end, so I probably could have pushed a bit more. 0.5 miles @ 10:00/mile to cool down.

0.5 @ 10:00/mile, 0.5 @ 9:13/mile, 0.5 @ 8:34/mile, 0.5 @ 8:00/mile, 0.5 @ 7:30/mile, then 5x0.1 mile increments ending at 7:03/mile. Total mileage was just over 3.0 miles.
