Action 461 - Scream If I Wanna Go Faster.

Yes, it's true. I'm paraphrasing the title of a Geri Halliwell song. But it's the best way to describe this morning's workout.

Action 461 - Scream If I Wanna Go Faster.

I only had thirty minutes to run this morning before I had to get showered and off to work, so I made the most of it on the treadmill. I decided to start at 6.5 mph and then kick the speed up every half mile... and a big boost at the end!

  • Mile 0.0-0.5 at 6.5mph

  • Mile 0.5-1.0 at 6.6mph

  • Mile 1.0-1.5 at 6.7mph

  • Mile 1.5-2.0 at 6.8mph

  • Mile 2.0-2.5 at 6.9mph

  • Mile 2.5-3.0 at 7.5mph

  • Mile 3.0-3.5 at 8.0mph


It felt pretty great. I really did feel stronger with every increase. And at the end of the thirty minutes, I was a sweat-covered big-grinning running fool.

And that's how to start the day.
