5k

  • Jul 16th, 2017 at 1:38PM

The 5k went surprisingly smoothly. This is my third straight treadmill run - the last two were due to weather, today was pure "I'm not feeling like counting off the laps on the track" (seriously, I am insanely lazy).

The first kilometer was a little creaky, but I got into a nice flow and ended up with a 28:50 time, which was a nice pace in the 4-6 (more 6 than 4) range for 3.75 k and then a slowly ascending kick for the last 1.25k. I normally don't kick that far, but I was so angered by Ed's insult towards Wookies I just had to burn off the aggression. If wookies are dumb, how come they can fix hyperdrives and pilot Millenium Falcons Ed??? Ever think of that?? Exactly.

RaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaOOOOOOOaaaaaaaaah!

Don't get too addicted to the treadmill. You get much less of a workout because the ground moves with your foot, and because you don't have to make those constant micro-adjustments in pace, footing, surface, etc.

      Ed's right regarding the 'mill. Is he ever wrong? Hmmmm. That said, you can offset that benefits from taking the run outside a bit by setting the incline to 1%. And of course the 'mill will always be a far cry better than missing a workout or setting out for a run in an area of the world that puts you in harms way (think brutal traffic, man-eating lions, banditos), Brett.
