Well, the heat finally forced me inside on the treadmill. But I had a great run. Started out at 5.3 for the 1st mile, upped it to 5.5 for the 2nd mile, then 5.7 for the 3rd mile and finally 5.9 for the 4th mile. I have NEVER run that fast on a treadmill and it felt GREAT!! I would have kept going, but had to do something and ran out of time:( Oh yeah, I also kept the TM at a 1% incline. Oh, and after every mile I slowed the TM to about 3.3, so I could drink my water without gagging:) Probably took about 15 seconds or so. Funny thing was, it was HOT in the gym, but no humidity, so much better than being outside today. I believe we are to get some rain storms, which we are hoping will break this heatwave!!!
My avg pace was 10:16 by the TM, but since I was running at a 1% incline, how does that translate to what effort I actually did?
Avg pace: 10:16
Avg HR: 147 Cardiac Drift: 155 (not sure what the MAX is??)
Splits were as follows:
Mile 1: 10:57 Avg HR: 140 Cardiac Drift: 149
Mile 2: 10:57 Avg HR: 146 Cardiac Drift: 149
Mile 3: 10:34 Avg HR: 149 Cardiac Drift: 153
Mile 4: 10:17 Avg HR: 152 Cardiac Drift: 155
