Alright, so maybe I don't hate the treadmill quite that much. Turns out I prefer doing my interval workouts on the 'mill because it is so much easier to pace myself for the right distances. I think that the variety of intervals makes the time on the treadmill go by a bit faster.
Since Kyle is also training for the 10K in September, he went out on a run last night after Eva went to bed and I went downstairs to churn out 3 x 800m with 400m jogs and 1 mile warm-up/cool down. Even though I had full intent on getting back into some speedwork a couple of months ago, last night was my first bout of speed work since I became pregnant with Eva. Nothing like a race looming in the future to give me focus.
The workout went well and I was amused to find that the speed I was running during my "resting" intervals is the same speed I labored with maintaining way back in the winter when I was coming back to running post-pregnancy and training for the half marathon.
I finally feel like I'm "back." And I must say it feels good!
