8 myles - 1.03:32

Treadmill - 4:00 P.M.
windy outside, mid 40s, clear
mind/body - good
hard effort

Prescribed workout: warm up/cool down, 30 minutes 6% @ 7.9 MPH (7:35)

Actual workout: 8 myles 1.03:32 avg. 7:56: 15 minute warm up, 15 minutes 6% @ 7.9 MPH, 15 minutes 6% @ 7.5 MPH, 15 minute cool down.

This workout kills me every time, but you know what.... I feel so good when I'm done! I couldn't make it the prescribed 30 minutes 6% @ 7.9MPH so I had to back it down to 7.5 MPH. Started spillin lactate around 12 minutes and then hung on until 15 minutes. I know the point of this workout is to raise the LT so I hang on for as long as I can. It feels good to back to the quality stuff.
