Yes, you read that correct. Today I did an interval run. This was my first interval run in over 3 weeks. Overall I felt pretty good, but it is amazing how quickly you can get out of shape. I was winded even at the pace that I was running.
I started the workout by walking for .25 miles. I started out at 3.5, then increase .1 every minute until I reached the .25 mile mark. Once I hit that .25 mile, I then increased the pace to 4.5 and ran a minute at that pace. I then increased the pace to 4.8, and ran another minute. Then I increased it to 5.0 and finished up the .25 miles. Once that was done, I increased the speed to 5.5 and ran for .5 miles. Once I hit the .5 mile mark, I slowed the place down to .5 miles, and completed another .25 miles. I then increased the speed to 5.5 for .5 miles, and then 5.0 for .25 miles. I did this repeat for 5 times. I then finished by slowing down .1 mph from the 5.5 on my last rep every 2 minutes until the time was up on the treadmill.
Overall my foot feels fine, and I am not pushing it. So tomorrow, I will do an hour on the elliptical so that I’m not pounding on my feet day after day for the next few weeks.
Then my plan will be to do a 45 minute tempo run on Thursday with my new Asics Gel-Kayano 17s. I’m pretty excited about trying out these new shoes. I will let you know more about them … and I hope they hold up better than the 2150s.
But all is going well …
