I approached the treadmill with trepidation, spent longer than necessary adjusting my headphones. Waiting for an excuse to head home and forget about it. I don't really need to train for another marathon. I started slow, real slow. It didn't hurt as much as expected, before I knew it I was increasing the pace. After 2 miles I hit mile 3 at goal pace and to overcome the boredom, spent the next 2 miles increasing my pace as much as I could. In hindsight it would have been better to get through this run slow, but there comes a point in every treadmill run that I have the urge to end it as fast as I can.
I'm hoping that the rest of the week I continue to forget about the damage done to my quads and focus on moving forward from the half marathon. Not sure where I'll end up with miles for the week but it won't be for lack of effort.
Miles trained today: 5
