1st PROGRESSION RUN: 5 MILES

Decided to run a progression run. It felt awesome, and if all goes well I will try to incorporate 2 progression runs into my training each week.

1:30pm - Got to the gym and TM's were all vacant. Yahoo!! Time was an issue, so decided to run a progression run so I could still get my miles in. First 2 miles were done at 5.6, next 2 miles were done at 5.8 and the last mile was done at 6.0 Legs really felt great. Wish I had more time today to run, but had to get kids from school.

Avg HR was 134 Cardiac drift: 150

M1 - 10:39 120bpm
M2 - 10:33 132bpm
M3 - 10:10 136pm
M4 - 10:11 140bpm
M5 - 9:50 142bpm

Tomorrow is my daughters 6th birthday, and I spent most of today making cupcakes. I am hoping I will get to yoga from 9:30 to 11am, and then get in a TM run at the gym in the afternoon, but may drop by her class and do a craft, so not sure. Some days I wish there were more hours in the day to fit everything in. LOL but I will do my best to get back to the gym for a nice slow easy TM run

That's my favorite way to tackle a treadmill run-- keeps it interesting to press the speed up arrow every mile or so! Happy sixth bday to your daughter!
