    😂 yeah for sure the treadmill can be crushing, but I do think doing a few of them on there can be beneficial for feeling the paces, getting into that pancake-flat running rhythm, learning what the pace feels like, etc.

    I also understand, just getting out the door and getting your tempo in. In that case, pay real close attention to the effort. Recognize that downhills will be a little faster at the same effort and uphills slower. See what the average works out to be and adjust the next time. If you are within a few seconds +/- on the overall average, that’s not bad. I would just not want you to really force the issue to hit pace when that’s not the primary factor on the hills.
