What a ripoff - it turns out that I could only play the games on my new computer for free a handful of times. Now if I want to play them again, I'm prompted to a screen that invites me to buy "chips." WTF?? But also, what a blessing in disguis... Read more

This evening I did speed intervals at the gym, alternating 8.0 and 6.5 mph as long as I could handle that. After 15 or so minutes of that I had to slow it down a bit, so I went to 7.9 and 6.1 mph, but I bumped it back up to 8.0 at the end. My ... Read more
