With the treadmill I usually have to put pace goals aside because somehow even though I am running slower, it always makes faster paces seem easier when I get outside (If that makes sense?) I set out yesterday to get 10 miles done before I left, so I could leave confident that I would survive my half in 12 days. I plan to run some in Disney, but I'm pretty sure I won't be getting any long runs in.
Guidelines for getting through: ( I have to tell myself these beforehand so I don't get frustrated with running slower/ getting my butt kicked by the treadmill)
* It is okay to run slower (which also applies to the fact it was a long run)
* It is okay to take a few short breaks (With treadmill long runs I have to stop at times for 30-60 seconds and then continue on. All I cared about yesterday was getting the mileage in)
With those in place I knocked those 11 miles out of the park :D Time: 1:41 I kept it mostly at a 6.2-6.5 (9:40- 9:14), but in the later miles I threw in some 8.0 (7:30). I was going to stop at 10, but then thought why not just go for 1 more :)
And with that I am out of here
Lemme know if I miss anything monumental while I'm gone :D
