Enter Your Time: 41:30
Enter Your Distance: 4 Miles
Enter Your Pace: 10:22 Per Mile

So you might have guessed it!?! 

I ran 4 miles in 40 minutes & 30 seconds last night with a 10:22 per mile pace on the treadmill at the gym last night!!!  =)  Which made me SUPER HAPPY after as that is the fastest I have run over 3 miles!!! 

I did the Build Speed With Ease routine below: 

  • Treadmill 
    • 4 Mile Run
      • 41:30 minutes (Build Speed With Ease) – 10:22 minute mile pace
        • Mile 1
          • 5 minute “warm up” @ 5 to 5.5mph
          • 5 minute 30-second pickups & cool downs
            • 6mph to 7.5mph for 30 second “pickup”
            • 5.5mph 30 second “cool down”
        • Mile 2
          • 10 minute quarter-mile runs & cool downs
            • 5.5mph f/3 minutes
            • 6.0mph f/2 minutes
        • Mile 3
          • 10 minute quarter-mile runs & cool downs
            • 5.5mph f/2:30 minutes
            • 6.0mph f/2:30 minutes
        • Mile 4
          • 10 minute quarter-mile runs & cool downs
            • 5.5mph f/2 minutes
            • 6.0mph f/3 minutes
      • 6 minute “cool down” & “sprints”
        • 3 – 1 minute 3.5mph “cool down” walks
        • 3 – 1 minute 8 to 8.5mph “sprints”

I cannot express enough just how much I love this routine!  It is super easy to follow and makes the time on the “treadmill” that usually goes by at a snail’s pace seem so much faster.  If you are trying to increase your speed I highly recommend this routine,  you can find it on my Running page. 


Prior to doing the above I completed the following from my Iron Pumping Challenge

  • Sit Ups
    • Seated Leg Tucks Off Bench
      • Missed
    • Stability Ball Crunch
      • 2 sets of 25 reps
    • Straight Leg Pullover Crunch
      • 2 sets of 25 reps
    • Toe Touch Crunch

  • Shoulder, Chest & Triceps 
    • Bench Dips
      • Missed (Equipment taken for too long!)
    • Lateral Raise
      • 2 sets of 12 reps
    • Overhead Press
      • 2 sets of 15 reps
    • Overhead Cable Triceps Extension

    • Stability Ball Leg Lift
      • 2 sets of 5-10 second reps each side
    • Stability Ball Push Ups
      • 2 sets of 20 reps

I am into Week 15 of my Iron Pumping Challenge and still loving it!   

The challenge was only supposed to be 12 Weeks, however I am continuing it for 16 Weeks in all due to the fact that throughout the challenge I have missed doing one or more of the routines during selected weeks and I wanted to make up for those I missed. 

A full review of my 16 Week “Iron Pumping Challenge” will be given after I complete it next week, but I will tell you this I have already seen lot’s more TONING throughout my body so I highly recommend this routine to anyone! 


 My EATS were pretty good again today!  =) 


Breakfast was courtesy of my mom who gave me the above filled with plain yogurt, diced apples and walnuts.  It was really good and I will make it in the future for myself. 

Late Morning Snack

I am a sucker for toasted whole-grain bread with crunch peanut butter and sliced banana on top, so that is what I had for a late morning snack today. 


You cannot beat 2+ day old chili as it always tastes better the day after you make it and it surely did today when I had it for lunch.  =) 

Unfortunately, I do not have a picture of dinner for you to view and it isn’t (surprise, surprise) because my camera battery died (which it did in fact) it is because I did not eat dinner last night!  =O 

Of course I do not recommend this and didn’t really plan it…..it just sort of went that way as I got home late, then had to take a shower, do laundry, walk the dog, blah blah……….and before I knew it was almost 10pm! 

I did snack on some Publix peanut butter filled pretzels and some papaya.  So I at least I had a little something. 

Bed time called early tonight as I was pretty tired after my hard run and I slept pretty good finally, though I know that it was also do to the nice cool breeze we had coming through the windows.
