Type - Gradient treadmill run
Distance - 3 miles
Time - 28 minutes 45 seconds
Back to the gym for a decent cross training and running session. I spent the first half an hour on a variety of bicep, upper back and pec resistance machines before heading on the cross trainer for a half an hour session at a decent level of resistance. Suitably warmed up I decided to do a hill programme on the treadmill.
I had forgotten how difficult some of the settings could be, and thought that programme level 10 (out of 12) would be easy enough. It wasn't. Whilst it wasn't difficult to finish it, I was a big sweaty mess by the end. Still, that is the point of these training sessions - to vary from the usual steady runs and improve the overall stamina and fitness.
