I was supposed to run 25 minutes on Friday. Here is what happened:
As I got close to my 25-minute target, I realized that I was doing OK. Then I decided to do 2.25 miles or 28 minutes, whichever came first. 2.25 came and went, so I decided to go for 2.5 miles. I did it, and I did it in 29 minutes and 4 seconds.
This is where I get fuzzy. At that pace (2.5 in 29:04), I was going 5 miles an hour. However, I kept the treadmill at 5.4 for the first 20 minutes, dropped to 5.2 for three minutes and finished at 5.6. Not once was I at 5.0. What the heck? Did I run farther than the treadmill says? Faster?
