I've notice and I've said it in the pass that it do help me to run on the dreadmill once or twice a week because it do keep me on track at pace that I am not able to maintain any longer on the outdoors. So when I can I will get in there. I've heard a few people say they learn to run faster on the treadmill. The first two days was a test for me but on Friday I felt great on the treadmill.
When I ran outside on Saturday I felt the dif. I actually picked up the pace quite a bit. But then I slowly eased into my outdoors boring pace.
Sunday(today) long run was a really challenge my only hydration was on my 16th mile I stop in at the Norwalk Community College and drank water. Thank God there was some type of activity going on. I really need to plan for my long runs better. I really was trying to stay under 4:00hrs but that just did not happen I think my last mile was 14:36.
This truly is a tough schedule to follow and for someone that trains at my pace its even tougher. I figure whatever I do will certainly help me next month. So onwards I march into week 8. Should be a littler warmer!!! Just want to thank all of you for all your encouragement. Thank you Dusty you really made me feel special how could I not go on?!!!
