Making a mountain out of a treadmill
|5.0||57:12 mins.||T to the R to the eadmill||11:25 ish mins./mi.|
The schedule called for five, so, dagnabbit, I did five. But I didn't feel like running it fast. And I was on the treadmill. And I'm beginning to dread the hills of Big Sur, particularly Hurricane Pt., the 550-ft, two-mile extravaganza of suffering at miles 10 - 12 of the Big Sur Marathon.
So what did I do? I raised the incline on the treadmill.
How much did I raise it? I don't know. The treadmill didn't display the degrees of angle.
How many pounds of water did I lose while running? Four. In an hour.
Today is an off-day. Tomorrow doesn't get easier, though. I have to run 14. Eeeek!
I'll post Friday Mailbag later today.
