Most people when they walk into the gym to go for a run see this:
At any rate, I plugged in the iPod and surrendered to the machine. Despite the heat and absolutely still air in the gym, the workout went well to say the least. 20 minute warm-up and then 60 minutes steady at 9.3 mph... most likely a new record for me. I know comparing treadmill pace to real pace is like comparing the Canadian dollar to the US dollar, but still.... 9.3! I'm sure I'll be paying for that late in the week next week.
Long ride tomorrow, and hopefully again on Sunday. After that it's one more week before I rest and test and then Base 2 will be in the books. Hard to believe it's been 6 weeks already.Next week will be a run "stretch" week due to some work commitments. Yes, I said "stretch".
