Intervals on a Treadmill - 17 Weeks until the Marathon

Tuesday, February 08, 2011

Okay so I hate interval training and speed work, but if you are going to train for a marathon it is a necessary evil. I am a Jeff Galloway fan and qualified for Boston back in 1996 using his method. I promised myself I would train consistently and add a little speed, so today was the day.

Of course there was mucho snow on the ground and temps were low, so I had to resort to the treadmill. emoticon The beauty about the treadmill is CONSISTENCY.

The Plan 1 minute walk at 4.5mph pace, 2 minutes at 5.2 mph pace, 3 minutes at 6.2 mph pace and start all over again until four miles were complete. emoticon

Hmmm...I wonder if it was all those military guys staring at the "crazy" woman that motivated me more! emoticon
