I had a good run on the treadmill at the Y this morning. I have been doing a lot of distance but not much speed work, so I thought I should work on speed a bit today. I did 5 miles, staring at an 8:30 pace for the first mile, then sped up each half mile after that. My half mile was at a 7:30 pace. I finished the 5 miles in 41 min, then cooled down on the treadmill by walking another mile, in 15 min. It was good to work at cranking up the speed as the run progressed, my last race I ran out of steam at the end!
After that, I checked the kids out of child watch, got them changed and we swam in the family pool, which was a good way to relax after a good run.
