Day 17, the treadmill - After almost killing myself last night, I decided to do some sprints and walking on the treadmill. Nothing special, just 2.5 miles mixed jogging, walking and 300 m sprints. This time though, I increased the speed of my walks from 3 mph to 4 mph, which already makes a significant difference. The sweat was running faster than I could imagine.
The tip from yesterday about the shin splints was great. Stretching out my shins before running did the trick. But tying my shoes too tight was a disaster. Try it.. it can ruin one's running day.
Distance: 2.5 miles
Time: 24 minutes
