I will admit that performance is a rush

Yesterday’s run (treadmill): 25 minutes
Today’s run (treadmill): 25 minutes

I’m currently in the middle of a group of multi-day industry meetings. These gatherings are energizing, but they can take up a lot of time. In the past, I’ve skipped one or more workouts during these periods because of the impact on my schedule. I’m pleased that this week I’ve been able fit in my runs and stay on schedule.

One of this year’s goals is to get outside more often on my morning runs. That wasn’t an option today with a mix of freezing rain and snow coming down at 4 AM. Like yesterday, I headed to the treadmill and did a progressive speed run, pushing hard enough to get my heart rate to target.

While I do believe that moderate workouts are my best strategy, I do like the rush that comes from doing multiple speed increases over the last quarter of these runs. Right now, a little speed goes a long way.
