Maxing out the treadmill

After last week’s 400 m speed work, I headed to the gym with a little but more confidence today. I ran my 200 m intervals at 5:00 minute mile pace, which is as fast as the treadmill will go. The last one was tough, but not horrible. I have no idea how people can run this fast for a whole marathon.

Actual workout

5 minutes walking

5 minutes at 9:15 pace

9 200 m intervals at 5:00 pace

  1. Wow, 5:00 minutes miles for a whole marathon — I never thought of it that way! That is pretty insane how some people could do that. I don’t even think I could ONE 5:00 mile…EVER! 🙂 Congrats on your workout though. Sounds great!
