AKA my longest treadmill run to date.
I’m usually quite good at hitting a consistant pace when I’m running, and can run on feel (with a few glances at my watch) most of the time. However when I’m trying to hit a particular pace that is faster than my usual pace then I’ll do my first training run at that pace on the treadmill so that my mind and body understands what the pace feels like.
I actually don’t mind running on the treadmill when I’m using it for a speed session or completing an interval workout, but I do find it boring running at one pace for longer than 10-15mins at one speed (especially when the TV doesn’t work).
This workout was a long one for the treadmill, and tough mentally and physically. It was nearly 8 miles on the treadmill, but you could easily complete this workout outside if you want. I’ve got this training run on my plan for this week again, but I’ll definitely be taking it to the pavement.
Definitely a sweaty mess by the time I hopped off the treadmill, foam rolled and got ready for work.
Do you use MPH or KPH on the treadmill and when you’re out on a run?
