Run #1 – Success!

So yesterday I talked about getting back to running and I am proud to say Day 1 was a success!

3.33KM in 34min!

It has been quite a while since I’ve done any running so I am glad that I’m starting back to basics.  The run wasn’t really difficult but it wasn’t a piece of pie either.  Secretly, I missed the 1min runs so it was nice to get back to them.  They seriously just fly by!

The breakdown of my workout was:

5min warmup @ 3.0mph

1 - 1min run @ 5.0mph/1.0 incline

     2min walk @ 3.5mph/0 incline

2 - 1min run @ 5.0mph/2.0 incline

     2min walk @ 3.5mph/0 incline

3 - 1min run @ 5.0mph/3.0 incline

     2min walk @ 3.5mph/0 incline

4 - 1min run @ 5.0/4.0 incline

     2min walk @ 3.5mph/0 incline

5 - 1min run @ 5.0/3.0 incline

     2min walk @ 3.5/0 incline

6 - 1min run @ 5.0/2.0 incline

     2min walk @ 3.5/0 incline

7 - 1min walk @ 5.0/1.0 incline

     2min walk @ 3.5/0 incline

8 - 1min walk @ 5.0/0 incline

     2min walk @ 3.5/0 incline

5 min “warm-down” @ 3.0/0 incline

Brilliant me wore my Garmin on my wrist but totally forgot to wear the HRM so I have no idea what my heart rate was at.  Oh well – at the very least it kept my programmed workout on track.

Session #2 starts on Wednesday and hopefully it’s nicer out.  It was super windy and cold out here so I wasn’t about to go outside.  The drafts are bananas by our place.   - Don’t judge -

Someday I’d like to challenge myself to get up early and get the runs out of the way.  I am not at all a morning person so I can’t see it happening anytime soon, but we shall see!

I hope everyone had a fantastic Monday!

I wish that I could get up early to work out too but...yeah right. :)

All the intervals really make the time fly with the constant changing. I'll do that sometimes with the incline on the treadmill.

Great job on your first "offical" training run!
