I warmed up this morning with 10 minutes of Pilates before walking to the park to do my 3 mile run. The first mile I felt lethargic, but once I made my mind conquer my body, I picked up the pace for the second mile. I also did an exaggeration of my movements, i.e. high knees, longer stride, farther reach with my arms. I don't know if there is a name for it, but that's what I did to work on my form and increasing my speed. It seems to have worked a bit because I felt my energy level increase, and by mile 3 when I returned to my normal running form, I could tell I was going a little faster. When I downloaded my workout info from my Garmin, it showed a little over 1 mph difference between my slower pace and the 2nd mile pace. After my run I also did workout 1 of the Yoga Meltdown.
