A Mile a Day - Day 19

Day 19

Man, what a day this mornings run was. So I'm on the road for an event in Charlotte and I'm staying at a hotel, but unfortunately there is no real "road area" around to go for a run around the hotel. So I was stuck on a treadmill, now this is the first time I've been on a treadmill during this challenge, and running on a treadmill is so much more difficult. So I had to go off the pace set by the treadmill speed. So I did some Run/Walk intervals since it was something different. So I went with the 10:00/ mile pace for 2.5 minutes (essentially a 400m) then walk 2.5 minutes. Repeat that one time. Then I increased the speed to have a 9:18 mile pace, so I did that for 2.5 minutes and rested 2.5 minutes, and repeated that. I know, what I just wrote is extremely confusing and it took me a while to figure out how I was going to write that out, but hopefully you get the idea. I probably ran over a mile today, but the concept still remained the same, I wanted to get in a mile at a decent pace, and that is exactly what I did.

What did I listen to? Thunderstruck Radio on Pandora. (Haven't found a better one, open for suggestions)

Verse of the Day: Matthew 19:23,24 "Then Jesus said to His disciples, 'I assure you: It will be hard for a rich person to enter the kingdom of heaven! Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter the Kingdom of God.'"

Today was a good day. A different type of run, but different is good. I had to go outside my comfort zone to finish today's run and that's what I did. Thanks for checking in and we'll do it again tomorrow!
