So of course with this run the question arose, do I try to do 5K every time I get on the treadmill now? Since it’d been all the way since Friday, a longish break, I decided to go for it.
So, I went:
1 min. 4 mph walking
33 min. and like 10 seconds or so 5.5 mph running to get to 5K of running
1 min 4 mph walking
I went up to 5.5 mph running because, quite honestly, I didn’t want to spend as long on the treadmill, and I didn’t think it’d be a significant effort difference from my prior speed. It wasn’t, though I did notice it a little.
The real issue is that I had various aches related to this run. One knee & one foot hurt briefly while running. Back hurt a bit after. Darn it! I know I should be stretching or something, but really, I don’t want to! I don’t like how this is eating into my time already. Now it’s not a simple 30 minutes, it’s a bit longer. And since I can’t haul myself out of bed in the morning, I have to take a 2nd shower. Inefficient! If I have to add stretching in, it’ll be even more time-consuming. I don’t have the time, and I don’t need more things that make it harder to get myself to do it. Sigh.
