I Run Around

Running is the most natural form of exercise

Progress report

on April 4, 2013

Yesterday at the gym I ran 2 miles in 20:31 at an average pace of 10’14″/mile and today I ran 2.01 miles in 19:47 at a pace of 9’47″/mile.  Both ran on the treadmill and data collected by the Nike+ running app.

On yesterday’s run I cranked up the speed rather quickly into the run and tried to maintain my pace. After about a mile I grew a little tired and took a minute walk break. After which I slowly increased my speed to about a 5 on the treadmill.

Today I started off slow and gradually increased my speed every two minutes until the last 5 minutes where I increased my speed every minute. I find running faster is easier. After about a minute of running at a faster speed my body gets used to it and it becomes more of a rhythm. I try to keep a quick cadence, never spending too much time on my feet.

I like increasing my speed at the end. It makes the run feel good, like I really worked and it’s great training for a race.
