With the lazy snowed in weekend and the uber long commute on Monday evening, I really had no desire to work out the past couple of days. When I got home last night though, I knew I had to and I was going to reward myself with a dip in the hot tub after.
I hopped on the treadmill and didn't feel like just running a constant couple of miles so I selected a program that was 30:00 and varied incline from 0-6 and pace from 3 (warm-up) to 6.5. The program brought me to 2.5 miles so I finished strong with another 2.5 miles for 5 total miles.
I can't tell you the last time that I chose to run 5 miles. I felt awesome and really pushed through on the last mile increasing my speed every minute.
I got this workout in an email from Tone It Up.
I'm thinking I'll give this a try soon.
