10 mph…

10 miles per hour seems slow when you are thinking about driving your car.But when you are on the treadmill, 10 mph is fast (to me anyway). I have been trying to get up the courage to go at 10mph for a long time…today I finally did it. I have always keep my intervals around the 9.0-9.4 range. Mentally, I just always thought 10 mph was too hard. Also, when you are outside sprinting…you don’t think about it being too hard…maybe because you don’t have a fear of falling. This morning, I got on the treadmill at my apartment complex and just told myself to go for it…and I did it! I did not have to worry about other people being around, looking at me if I started making funny noises :). It was tough and also invigorating to be able to do that multiple times.


Now I have set a new standard for myself. 10 mph is the minimum for sprints. I know I can do it, so I can’t do anything less! If you find yourself doing the same thing over and over and over again…push yourself to the next level! Get over your fear of falling. Just go for it. Your body is capable of much more than you think. Your thoughts will push you farther or keep you where you are…

“If we understood the power of our thoughts, we would guard them more closely. If we understood the power of our words, we would prefer silence to anything negative. In our thoughts and words we create our own weaknesses and strengths. Our limitations begin in our hearts where we can always replace negative with positive.”

  1. 10 mph is moving! How did manage to handle transitions between high speed and resting intervals on the treadmill, that is – if you did intervals.
