Podrunner: Intervals Week 7 Day 1

Monday, February 23rd, 2009

Today I did the first run of Podrunner: Intervals Week 7. It involved a 25 minute run. I set the treadmill at a 10:20 pace and managed to keep myself running at that same speed the entire time. I think I covered around 2.41 miles running, plus the warm up and cool down time walking, for a total of right at 3.0 miles.

I used an ice pack on my knees when I got home because of some pain and bruising. They feel fine now, a couple hours later. I think I’ll stick to the three days a week that is recommended, instead of trying to push myself with more running. Do a little weight lifting and elliptical (I tried that yesterday for 15 minutes — challenging!) and stationary bike on the other days.
