Well, it snowed last night , and with freezing temperatures forcast for this morning I made the decision last night that today's run would be on the Treadmill 😁
I really didn't fancy getting out of a nice warm bed, and going out in freezing temperatures for my hill repeat run
So, instead, out of bed, Dynamics done ,
5 min warm up walk , set treadmill incline and off we go and I didn't even need to leave the bedroom 😁
This was an NRC Run , and all part of my plan to get back into the habit of 1. Running more frequently and 2. Mixing my runs up again which is something I always used to do and i know it works !
I have avoided hill workouts previously but now it's time (infact well overdue) to embrace them and a steady treadmill incline was a perfect start !
The paces (or efforts) were 45 seconds at 10k pace and recover, then 15 seconfs at Best pace .
Repeat this series 5 times !
It was tough!
And the only downside is it takes a little too long for the treadmill to wind up .
Nothing major but I would have got to pace quicker had I been outside , so this made the timings a little off the mark but close enough !
So, it was just a 21 minutes work out , but completed successfully without going out in the freezing temperatures 😁
Only problem is Garmin data is looking like nonsense and of course Garmin pace is just an average which includes recovery times at a slow jog or quick walk .
But I'm happy to go by perceived effort as always 😁
Stretches done, porridge eaten and now for a relaxing bath before work !
Happy running! 😁
