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.
