Treadmill Progression and Feeling Impressed - RunLog 8-11-16

This post was written for and first appeared on One Foot In Reality.

Today was hot, too damn hot to think for more than 2 steps towards the truck about running outside and mercifully, I quickly decided that running on the Planet Fitness Treadmill was being smahter and would not result in flashing lights and strange people taking me to a really cool room in the basement someplace.

Notes/Observations about the run: Since I knew that I was hitting the treadmill and I knew that I was going to run for the second time in the Under Armour Apollo 2's, I had a sneaking suspicion that I might push the pace a little more than I would have outside.

I started out at an 8:00 minute pace and everything felt really good, I was not looking for any speed records, so I only increased by .1 mph for the next couple of miles even though I wanted to run faster.

Yeah, I felt good, the shoes disappeared and the air conditioning felt really good compared to what it would have been like running outside in the heat and humidity (when I was driving home it the bank said 98*F and high humidity)

When finished up the 3.0 miles I was still feeling pretty strong, so I popped it up to 8.0 mph and everything held together pretty well, so I decided to see if the leg would hold up to a 7:00 minute pace. It did okay for the first .10, but by the time I got close to being done, I was glad that I wasn't going any further at that speed.

The leg was just starting to complain about being abused, so it was time to shut it down. The 4.0 miles was just enough and not too much, especially once I picked up the pace.
Shoes Used:
U/A Apollo 2
Mileage:
7.02
Remarks:
Surprised by how quickly the Apollo's disappeared on my feet...no hot spots, nothing negative. They run lighter than the 8.1 oz that I weighed them at. Feel like a shoe that I have been wearing for more than 2 runs - in a word comfortable
Weight: --
Sleep: 8.0
Aches and Pains:
Left Leg - feeling better
Hamstrings - didn't bother
