5 miles - 11:12 avg. treadmill - rehab (sub 12 minute pace so i'm logging the miles)
miles 1&2 @1% incline - 14:47, 11:30
miles 3&4 @2% incline - 11:13, 9:42
mile 5 @2.5% incline - 9:50
walk 1/4 mile cooldown @3% incline
one positive from an injury is it makes me even more grateful that i can run at all. two weeks ago i seriously considered that i might not be able to run again. getting the treadmill was a good idea.
the first mile i walked most of the first half but then was able to increase the pace relatively quickly as the knee loosened up by then. the knee soreness varied throughout the run but increasing the incline seems to help and running a little quicker seems to feel better for a short while then i have to slow down again for a bit. all in all i am very relieved that the injury isn't as bad as i thought it was. phew!
going to stick to the soft, forgiving TM for the foreseeable future. maybe mix in some road miles starting next year.
