10 Mile Treadmill/Outside Run
|Palo Duro Canyon Vacation in June|
It's hot outside so today, I started my run inside. I ran 6 miles on my treadmill. After a three mile warm-up and a stop for raisins and water, I increased the pace, sometimes after 1/4 mile, sometimes after 1/2 mile, and then went back down to a slower pace and worked back up again. When I was finished on the treadmill, I ate some more raisins, drank some more water and headed outside for 4 more miles.
My legs felt surprisingly light so I tried to keep my speed up outside. Except for my cool down mile, each mile was faster than the previous one. Yesterday's outside 8 mile run was harder to finish than today's run even though I ran faster and farther today. Fun run today!
Pre-run: I've been running without eating first. Works fine for me.
