4 Mile Hill

As soon as I got home tonight I went over to our fitness center and cranked out a good workout on the treadmill. I'd much rather be outside but I'm starting to get sick of bundling up and am looking forward to spring like everyone else. The only good thing about the treadmill is that it keeps you moving when you feel like stopping.

So... tonight I started off by walking up a 15% grade at 3.5 mph for 15 minutes. Then for the next 15 minutes I ran at 5 mph on a 10% grade. And then to finish it off I walked for another 1/2 hour on a 15% grade going 3.5 mph. This gave me a solid hour of uphill running/walking and totaled 4 miles.
