Didn't get to the gym till 3:10, and I had to get Rebecca from the bus stop at 4pm, and since I wanted to run 5 miles, I set the TM to 6.0, at about a mile and a half I felt something in my right foot (nothing major, but made me realize I had NO warm up, stupid, stupid, stupid. Guess that happens when you're rushing and HAVE to get the mileage in LOL Well, From 1.5 to 2.5 I ran at 5.6 then 5.8, and the right foot felt fine, so I ran the next at 6.0, to get me to 3.0 miles, then I got the phone call (a bonus of my iphone/ipod, phone, it was BR411 asking if I was getting Rebecca at the bus stop or is he supposed to do it, as he is now home on Fridays. Well, that call came in at 3:43, and I still had 2 miles to go, I told him yup, I'm getting Rebecca, and cranked the TM up to 6.3 for half mile, then 6.5 for half mile, felt good, then 7.0 and finally 7.5 I don't think I've ever run that fast on a TM, but it felt good HR hit 185, LOL Thank goodness I don't do hard workouts often, but I think I'm good, or better for todays tempo run.

Oh, and I made it to the bus stop with 1 minute to spare LOL

Gosh, 7.5 mph on the treadmill is a pace of 8 minute go girl!! (I'm new at this slang thing and hope "you go girl" is not condescending)
