With temps in the single digits and wind chills in the negative teens I decided I was going to do my pace run inside today. I grabbed my gear and headed out to the gym.
At 5:15 about a quarter of the treadmills were already taken so I grabbed on up front and started off with a warm up mile at 10:49. Since they're programmed to stop after 60 minutes I stopped my workout and restarted it rather than having to stop half way through my pace run. I got it back up to speed and by the end of my first mile I think I had finally thawed out. My pace at a 1.5% incline was a little slower than what I had been running outside but I was able to keep all of my miles under 10 minutes (9:55, 9:54, 9:53, 9;54, 9:51, 9:45) but failed to keep my speed getting progressively better due to a mental error more than a physical limitation.
Once my 6 miles were up I only had about a minute before my 60 minutes were up and the treadmill went into cool down mode for another 5 minutes. I added on another 0.36 miles in cool down and then headed out to start the day.
