We gave it an honest try… but when my feet were soaking .1 miles into the warm-up, I changed my plans and decided I was going to do the speed portion on the treadmill.
But the 3.8 miles out in this with friends was fun (and cold).
The joy of having a coach= The workout was a 4-mile tempo + 4 x 200m intervals. When I hit mile 2 of the tempo, I so badly wanted to turn the workout into 2 x 2 miles because I was so tired but I didn’t because I had someone to report back to.
4 miles @ 6:32 average + 4 x 200m (5:30 pace) and then a cooldown outside. I’m really not feeling like my ‘tigger’ (my mom’s nickname for me) self lately, so I’m getting some bloodwork done but maybe it’s just the weather/vitamin d thing?!
We finished off the day with Andrew making us chocolate chip cookies.
And let’s be real, I ate the dough while chatting with you all:)
You could only have cookie dough or baked cookies for the rest of your life… which would you choose?
What do you think… is the treadmill harder or easier than running outside?
