This is a marker. I know I've walked more than that but today, purely by accident, I decided to see how long it would take to actually finish those 3.1 miles. When I got on I intended on simply doing 5% incline training with intervals scattered here and there. But like Sigourney Weaver (Ripley) from Aliens when she saw that egg open I snapped and started thinking crazy at 1.5 miles. "Well, I'm already half way there. Let's do this!!" It took me 48 min 18 sec to git r dun. Having since gone over to Coolrunning.com I figured my pace at 15.35 min/mile. Shoes performed well, feet didn't hurt a bit, but I was more impressed with what I could do when I simply put my foot in my own a$$ and not quit. I'm sure my time will improve as the weight drops and especially if I remember to drop the incline. It was worth every drop of sweat that trailed behind me when done.
