Treadmill 5K

On the treadmill, I'm faster than I am in real life.  So, now that I can almost always bang out 3 miles in less than 30 minutes when I'm on there, I figured I should set some new goals for myself.  To start, I figured I'd see if I could do a 5K in sub-30.  It's just .1 farther than a regular ol' 3 miler, but somehow it seems just slightly more challenging.  And that's really all I'm after right now: Slight challenges.  Not real big ones.

And, I did it!  I clocked that 5K in 29:46.  If only I could do that on the road now.  Guess that's my next slight challenge!

Nice work! Treadmill speeds can be a little faster, but if you can run that pace on the 'mill, I'm SURE you can do sub-30 outdoors!

I always thought that my outdoor pace was faster than my treadmill pace... hmmm... go figure!

Maybe after you get bored on the treadmill, you will run faster outside automatically because you'll feel liberated.
