11 myles - 1.17:58

Treadmill - 3:00 P.M.
Windy, upper 50s, dry
mind/body - good/strong
Hard effort

Prescribed workout: Cut down/Kenyan 75 minutes starting @ 7.5MPH adding 0.1MPH/lap until LT. Remaining time @ 9 MPH

Actual workout: 11 myles 1.17:58. started @ 7.0MPH (8:34)adding 0.1MPH/lap up to 10 MPH (6:00). Remaining 20+ minutes @ 8.8 MPH (6:49)

It didn't happen exactly like that... Remember last time I made it to 9.9MPH and so come hell or high water I was gonna make it to 10 MPH! OK so I did... but I jumped off twice; once @ 49:30 for 10 seconds and then again @ 54:36 for 10 seconds. The second time was 1/2 way through 10 MPH lap. I admit I had two mental lapses when I just gave up but I hopped back on and gritted my teeth. I was still kinda mad at myself so I finished the workout with 3 minutes @ 10 MPH for good measure. Not really an improvement from last time but this is one tough workout - try it and see what you get, I'm curious....
