Push-the-Pace Workout

"I look forward to is a speed--well, speed for me, anyways--day on the treadmill. I start the first mile a slightly challenging pace and then make sure each one after that is slightly faster then the previous one. Every once in a while I will switch it up and instead of doing three 1-mile repeats, I will do 5-6 half-mile repeats.”
—Christine, another mother runner and contributor to Get Fit Alamo City
