4.5 yesterday on my pop-master treadmill. Got another 4 (I think) on schedule for tonight.<br><br>
Good news is that the repair guy called, and that I've received the replacement belt via UPS delivery. Radioyada should have a day off this week, so we're hoping to schedule the TM work on that day.<br><br>
Got a little tickled at something on saturday's LR. 1st lap around Stone Mountain, I'm going my usual 'chug-a-lug' pace. Somehow, on a flat area, I notice that somehow I'm going faster than normal. A LOT faster, actually, but I can't figure out how it's happening. To boot, it's not killing my cardio to keep up the pace. I try to analyze things while I"m running, to no avail, and finally just enjoy the faster speed while it lasted. (only a few minutes, but still.. better than I'd expected!)<br><br>
Radioyada and I were talking about it last night, and we joked that as long as my cardio can handle the 'bursts' of speed (for now), it almost sounded like the process that I went through, for a jumping-front kick in karate. For ages, I just couldn't figure out how to make everything work. Timing was off, and the coordination wasn't happening. Then one day.. voila.. it all came together. I didn't even know it, until I performed the kick correctly, and then, in a Keanu Reeves moment, thought "whoa...."<br><br>
Maybe.. just maybe... that speed with running will sort of flow in the same manner. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br><br>
P.S Thanks for the <b>Garmin comments</b> this weekend folks. While I haven't bought one yet, I'm about 85% sure of the decision now. Walmart.com has the 305 for something like $212, which is probably as cheap as I'm going to see the thing.
