Hoofed it on the treadmill this morning. Too cold and windy and rainy and nasty to be outside this morning. I managed 3.0 miles in 31:00 minutes for an average pace of 10:20. Not too shabby. I knew I had to go fast if I wanted to get my three miles in. I started at an easy pace of 10:30 for one mile (walked a little at the very beginning to get my ipod and stuff situated), then did mile two at 10:00 min/mile. Mile three I bumped it up a notch for the first half (9:40-something pace) and finished strong with two more notches for the second half mile at a 9:30 min/mile pace. I was tired, but felt like a rock star at the end. I was quite proud to get in all three miles in the little time I had.
