Run: 3.1 Miles
Time: 29:57 (9:40 pace)
Got to the gym around 9:00 pm last night and hopped on the treadmill. I spent about 3 or 4 minutes just getting adjusted to running on it because this is only my second run ever on treadmill.
I decided I would do high tempo 5k to see where I stood with that distance. I started off a little slower then I wanted and did the first mile in 10:30. The second mile I turned up the speed a little bit and hit 10 flat. Just over the 2 mile mark my time was around 20:30 so I pushed up the speed a little more and did the last 1.1 miles in 9:27. It felt great and my allergies didn't bother me while I was running, however, during my cooldown the allergies kicked in and really started acting up. Once I got out of the shower and took my meds I was fine.
I'm really happy to push my 5k distance under the 30 minute mark. My last two 5k training runs have now been under that mark. Tonight I will do another treadmill run and tomorrow morning I am meeting a coworker to do a long bike ride around Donaldson Center. I'm going to push to do around 28 miles, which is about 4 laps. I will be meeting him around 8am tomorrow morning and it should be a blast. Hope everyone has a great Friday. - Jason The Running Man
