Happy Feet!

I ran my scheduled 3 mile run on the treadmill in about 38 mins. Probably the best short run I've had all year. I really don't understand the pace though. I averaged  in the 12 minute mile range but somehow I ended up with a time two minutes slower than it should have been. I'm not so worried about the time was a very nice fun but edgy run, but either my Nike+ app or the treadmill pace counter was off. You can't run 3 miles at 12 minute mile pace and finish in 38 minutes. I'm not mathematician but....Jesus!

The gym was packed today. Every blue haired old woman in the county was on the 'mills walking two miles an hour. Good for them but I got stuck on one of the "bad" treadmills. But I ended up liking it. The pacing is better I think. The displays don't rotate like on the other machines so you have to watch either the pace or the distance or the time but not all three unless you poke at the machine constantly to change the setting. So I set it on distance and just ran hard and my time was nice. I may do my pace work on the "bad" treadmills from now on.

  1. Beware of the start up time it takes for the mill to get up to speed. That'll add at least 20 seconds right there! Plus, I think a treadmill operates in some sort of parallel dimension where time means nothing. Can't prove that though...yet.
