35 Minute Speed Workout

This wasn’t the workout I was planning tonight, but it will do. My tummy has been feeling pretty questionable off and on for most of the day.  I have small windows of time where I’m feeling pretty good, so I knew I needed to use one of those windows for a workout. So…I created this one on the fly before all heck broke loose.

And if you don’t know what I mean…

I really wanted this workout to be longer, but I’m glad I did something. This one could be a good one when I’m short on time.

Workout Stats:

Mileage run: 3.0
Mileage walked: .5
Total: 3.5 miles

Speed Workout

I picked my “rest” speed as 6.0 mph (10 min mile pace), which is about 30 seconds slower than my body normally wants to run.

Then I incorporated 1 minute of speed alternating with 1 minute of “rest.” I increased the speed by .5 each time until I reached what I thought was the maximum speed I could do for a minute without dying.

Once I reached my max pace, I did a “rest” pace for an extra minute, then started decreasing the speed until I was back at my starting speed pace.

I’ll definitely do this workout again. It was challenging. Plus, I wimped out on incline and cut it short because of my stomach.

Speaking of upset stomachs, have you ever googled “pee and poo?” I highly recommend it.

    That sounds like a BRUTAL workout! I need to start incorporating some speed runs. Maybe I’ll start with something similar to this (just much slower!)
