2x3 at Tempo

Quickly logging my run this morning, 2 x 3 miles at Tempo Pace (8:06). Started with a 1 mile warm-up at 10 min pace. Then did the first interval. I had to stop briefly on multiple occasions to refill sippy cups, referee, get Buddy down from the entertainment center, etc. All brief stops; not long enough to really lower my HR much.

During the rest interval, the kids finally got settled down and were playing with Lincoln Logs. I then started the second interval but was interrupted again before I finished and I decided I best stop after the 2nd mile (6th overall). I managed to squeeze in another mile cool-down (~9:22 min pace) for a total of 7 miles (59:51 total time / average pace 8:33).

I love having the treadmill here in the house. I know I'd never get my runs in otherwise. It is one of the best gifts I've ever received. I am very thankful.


  1. Hi Makita. I just found your blog through Tom's. It looks like you definitely stay very busy with your family and squeezing in some runs.

    I saw you have the Rumble on your race list for this year! If you haven't signed up yet, don't wait too long, as it will fill. Please find me at the race and say hi.

    Happy teaching and running!


  2. I'd say.. you are making good use of that treadmill. Nice tempo run!

  3. You earned that thar treadmill :-) Glad to see you are getting your monies worth out of it, and being able to keep the kids close is a bonus! Hubby gets it!! He's a good man :-D

  4. The Asics 2120 is my regular shoe too! The thing is they went to the 2130 - and it has a little seem in the collar that rubs and gave me blisters just under my ankles on both feet. I hope it works better for you!

  5. What a wonderful thing to have! Especially for a busy mom like you! Nice tempo run, indeed :)
