rob - i have been on the treadmil a lot this yr. mostly to do with the weather. the track and roads near me have been icy so have decided to play it safe and jump on a treadmill. however i am planning to do a tempo treadmill most saturdays due to my kids clubs or staying in looking after them i wont get the chance to go for a run outside. the way i see it is a tempo is about adaption and putting the body under stress to work out the lactic so i should get the same effect doing it on a treadmill. he says fingers crossed
i did a treadmill tempo, 40 mins in 5.39 pace which covered just over 7m. Felt ok, but I was watching an old man utd DVD from the 93/94 season so was good watching a utd team score goals so the time flew by.
