one step forward ....

last night I made it onto the treadmill - I'd been debating as I drove home whether to go to the gym or just drop into the athletics club and sit and mark while runnerbeanz ran
but decided there was time to have a worthwhile plod, though with the traffic I only managed 35 minutes

So tried to work har on the tready - doing a speed pyramid but did not manage much of the down side of the pyramid, cos I was enjoying pushing myself to go (relatively) fast

so I didn't cool down nor stretch properly and unfortunately the outcome is that I now have an aching back, and there is no way I could have gone to the club and run this evening :<(

at the risk of sounding like a broken recoerd-keep the pace eaty for now
too much risk of injury otherwise

take care

Now you know you should stretch.....

I disagree slightly with b-z, I don't think it's wrong to do the speed sessions as long as you're very careful and listen to what your body is saying.

I know you're trying to get into a new routine, and really you need to find a way to get back into some miles as well as the treadmill sessions. I find that I can have a real workout on the treadmill in half an hour but would rarely go out for a run that short! Bizarre.....

Every time I have tried to introduce speed sessions to my training I have injured myself so be careful!
