Well, after day 2 of AM running failure - I've decided that I'm NOT a morning person when it comes to workouts on a daily basis. So I'm just going to have to suck it up and run during my lunch hour and after work, even if it means living in treadmill hell 4-5 times a week with two-a-day runs here and there. The only exception to this is on the weekend for my long runs. Guess that my body and brain find the long run has more purpose and is the real meat-n-potatoes of it all.
But in any case, today's run was a good one. Progressive treadmill run at a 2% incline. Started at a 4.0 MPH (15 min/mile pace) and gradually increased the speed, finishing at 6.0 MPH (10 min/mile pace). So 38 minutes of running with a 90 second cooldown, I covered 3.30 miles (3.1 of those in 37 minutes). Hopefully tonight's run will be just as fruitful.
