Got to the gym at about 7 AM and hopped on the treadmill.

Warmed up for 3.25 miles starting out at 10 minute pace and working up to about 6:15 pace.

Then I did 7 X 1 mile on the treadmill with a 1/4 mile jog recovery interval. Kept the incline at 1.5% on the intervals and 2% for the warm-up and recoveries.

Times for the miles...

6:00, 5:56, 5:52, 5:48, 5:45, 5:41, 5:15

OK, I cheated and lowered the incline to 1% on the 5:15.

Great workout! Still very impressive, even with the slight decrease in incline on the last mile.

Nice mile reps Rob!

Nice workout Rob. 1.5% incline is legit. A few of those treadmills go over 12 mphs so I expect you to find one of those next time. ;)
