I don't remember the last time I ran on a TM. It was before my stress fracture, but it was cold and windy this morning, so I took my act to the gym. I forgot how much I really like running on a TM. TMs get a bad wrap.
Anyways I set the TM at 1% incline for the full workout.
2 mile warm up. My knee was feeling a bit tight and slightly painful. I considered mailing in the run but then figured I give it a go.
6 x 1 mile at 6:18 (9.5) with 1/4 mile walk breaks. My knee actually felt better at the faster pace. 6:18 should be about my half mp, but it felt a little more like 10K effort today. Not bad for my first mile repeats in a while. I felt good enough on repeat 6 that I considered going to 6:00 pace, but then decided to be smart and stick with the plan. I finished strong with a lot left in the tank. Hopefully my knee won't bother me tomorrow.
Total run 9.5 miles
