I'm getting faster! I really am! I did speedwork this morning...3x800 at 7mph (with the last one increasing to 8mph) with 400 recoveries at 6mph. On my treadmill, the mph is all I have to go by. However, I found this: Treadmill Pace Conversions. I'm going to post this in front of my treadmill! Since my training plan from SmartCoach tells me how fast in minutes/mile to go, it's kind of necessary to have some clue.

That means I ran 2 4:16 half-miles followed by one in 4:06. Not bad. Especially since I kept my recovery at a 10:00 mile (or 2:30 quarter mile).

I've got a five-miler coming up this weekend, and I'm hoping I can get outside to run it.


  1. YEA! I'm so impressed! Have fun on your run this weekend! I'll keep you posted on the outcome of my race on Sunday. xoxo

  2. I'll be thinking of you! I know you are going to rock it!
