Friday--speed work on the dreaded treadmill...

So nice to be all done ( almost) with my workouts for the day!
I kind of impressed myself by getting up early to go and do my speed workout! I am unable to run with the club on I asked a fellow clubber what the workout was.
They did a 1.6 mile warm up and cool down. In between that was some nonsense. 1 minute fast run followed by a 1 minute slower run...x8! I wish I could have been there with them for the motivation. But ya do what ya gotta do!
I did a 1.5 mile warm up (13 ish minutes). I stretched and then I did the workout. It was hard to figure out what speed to run at. I ended up going from 8.0 up to almost 10. It was hard ,but in a very gratifying fun way. Yea. I am weird. When I was done I stretched a bit and then ran a 1 mile cool down. I hopped on the elliptical for a very easy 15 minutes.
I am happy to say that I stretched again for a whole 13 minutes straight! I needed it too.
It was a great day. It's not over yet though. I have to teach Totally Toned at noon. I am not sure what I am going to do, so I best go and plan it now!
