AM- Big Treadmill Workout. I had debated what workout would be the least tedious on a treadmill and settled on a tempo run. But an even tempo gets boring, so I did a progressive tempo. 5 miles warmup, then started at about 6:20-6:30 pace (not sure- the treadmill definitely was going faster than it said it was- I've done lots of miles on this treadmill this week, and its "7:30 pace" is definitely faster than that). Every 0.5 mile I bumped up the speed. This really broke it up so I could think of only the next 1/2 mile increment. Watched soccer on ESPN the whole time. It was warm in the room with no fan, so my shirt was quickly soaked, sweat was flying off me, and eventually even my shorts (!) were drenched and sticking to me. Ick. Anyways, kept pushing the pace every half mile until I hit 8 miles of speedwork. Decided to throw on one more speed mile, so total speed workout of 9 miles, finishing at 11 mph (5:27 pace)- rather tired by the end. 3 miles cooldown, 17 miles total for the run. Scarfed down a huge breakfast at the hotel, then headed to work.
PM- 3 more before bed. You didn't really think I was going to stop at 99 for the week, did you? Weekly mileage PR by 1.5 miles. Feel good, only a little twinge in the bottom of my foot. Hopefully another 100+ miles next week, then take an easy week which happens to coincide with TOU 1/2.
