Hamstring Treatment Day 50: 6 miles on treadmill...

I pumped out 6 miles on the treadmill today. The weather was nice, but the roads were slushy and muddy, so I chose the indoor route. The treadmill works well. I get to watch videos of horse trials ("Eventing") while I run, and the time goes buy surprisingly quickly. I did the first 2 miles at a 6.0 "mph" pace, but slowed it down to 5.5. After about a half mile, though, I bumped it back up to 5.7 which was comfortable. I did the 6 miles in just under 63 minutes.

That makes 16.2 miles so far this week -- so just 4 miles tomorrow and I'm at 20 for the week and the point at which coach Brian says I can start working on increasing my speed.
