Sunday June 6th Treadmill time: Stongest Treadmill Run to Date

Well, I know that it is time that I start moving away from the treadmill and running more on the track.  I've been getting much stronger, and my wife says that I sound a lot lighter on my feet, so I am feeling really good about my runs.  However, the tradmill and track are completely different animals for many reasons like wind, pace, and impact.  I know that most people say that running on track will cause you to burn 10% more energy than you would on the treadmill over the same distance.  Also, I would really like to run a 5 or 10K this year, and if I plan to do that and not fall completely apart, I will need to move to the track.  However, I would like to lose about 5 to 10 more lbs. before I make the jump to the track.

Here are the stats for my lates run:

3.6 5mins, 6.5 10mins, 3.6 5mins, 6.5 10mins.

I looked like I had jumped into a pool with all my clothes after this run.


  1. Keep going, my friend! You can do it! I am aiming for a 5k this year myself. It would be cool to have several TSH folks do one together.

  2. You know, I had the same notion myself! I think that as the HR person I should organize a team building activity.
