AM: hit the treadmill this morning. oddly enough i actually felt like a treadmill workout. ran easy up to 5 miles, then went down to 6:48, 6:30, last mile at 6:22. i stopped at that pace because my shins started acting up and i didn't want to push them over the edge. i am going to ice them today and see if that helps...not quite sure what is going on with that. 

about half-way through my run i decided to play a little game (treadmills get boring). so the challenge was to see 100%  treadmill turnover before i stopped running. it ended up that everyone was on and off in about 45 min., except for the guy right next to me. i thought maybe he would beat me out because we started at the same time and he was still going when i was approaching 10 miles. and he was bugging me because he kept looking over at my treadmill and adjusting his speeds and such. so annoying!!!  but he too finally shut it down after 75 minutes and i was successful at my little challenge. dumb, i know, but it was kind of fun. i think an 11.5 mile run would almost always be grounds for "winning" this challenge...unless i am running at the same gym as RivertonPaul. :)

11.5 miles / 1:25:02 / 7:23 average

I am glad we don't run at the same gym or else it could be a tiring day. :) I have also played that game in the past and in most cases I also win. In the rare case that I don't, I always make sure to rationalize my defeat by running at a faster pace. Where would we be without rationalization? ;)

Nothing wrong with a treadmill run. I play the whose on longest game all the time. (Of course you and Fritz can rationalize how much faster you both are LOL.)

I love playing games like that when I am at the gym. I like to see how long it takes me to catch up to the person next to me. They always look at me like I am a mad woman. Thats ok because I am.

I do go to the gym Paul goes to but I go later. My husband goes early though and everyone knows him as "THE TREADMILL GUY". Good game and I know what you mean about the annoying guy next to you but you probably whooped him so it's all good.
