Ran down a trail which was sandy and hilly.  We stopped at a hill so we could run up it 3 times then ran back the way we came.

Jog around the block and then laps on a stretch of road .05 of a mile long until time ran out.  Short run.

Got a chance to hit my favorite run route this morning.  I always feel like it is just my personal route since it is usually empty.  Ran a variation of two laps.  46:58.21

That is the total distance it took me to go before I hit 85% of my VO something on a treadmill.  We started off at around 4.4 and increased speed every minute until we hit 6.0 or 6.2 mph.  Probably 6.0.  That took about 7 or 8 minutes.  Have to look at the chart again to be sure.  Anyway, the guy running it was pretty confident and competent in what he was doing.  He said I need to do sprints to improve my max.

Celebration day.  As a celebration for passing my test yesterday, I took off on a slow jog.  It seemed very easy at first.  In fact, I was going to speed up.  But then coming back, I was hurting so I'm glad I just kept it easy.  Averaged a 12:11 pace.  If only I could get rid of those hills on the route. 1 hr 52 sec.

Short easy run just to get a little mileage in.  Did 5 sets of pushups, situps, flutter kicks and dips to warm up.  Sounds like a lot but only did 12 reps per set.  That actually was enough for me to break a sweat.  27:36.63

Untimed.  Easy one mile run.

Timed.  I discovered that I could sing cadences in my head while covering the two mile course and suddenly I had something to distract me.  I had to speed up the cadence a little for the 2nd and 3rd lap to make sure I finished on time, but I'm going to try that from now on every time I have to run a two miler.  17:46  (I wonder if it is possible for me to break 17 minutes.)
