Either it will be 8 miles at 8 minute per mile pace or...

0.5 mph faster than the guy next to me making sure I do a longer time than he does so that when he steps off the treadmill in defeat, he'll know that he wasn't as good as me.

Does that sound like a well thought out training plan?

Its a nice warm place where you can train with less chance of getting injured.

Ah......  Can't afford one of them...

Sort of place where you can prance about and pretend that the women have noticed you (but haven't noticed your gut)

Its LA Fitness, if you run for more than 10 minutes, youve already beaten 90% of the gym goers. The funniest ones are the ones that do 'interval' training where they run like the clappers for 30 seconds, then walk for 2 or 3 minutes, then run like the clappers for 30 seconds ...... then they are done.

But you never know who the 10% is. This morning I was chicked on a treadmill (and very happy to be too).

chicked?

28/02/2013 at 18:50

Chicked - a term commonly used by male and female runners. It is thought to have been introduced by Dusty Olson (Scott Durek's support runner / buddy). Here is the definition:

When a woman outperforms a man in a physical activity, such as biking, hiking, or skiing, where normally a man should outperform the woman. "Wow, she sure finished the trail way before me" , "Dude, you got chicked!" Read "Eat and Run" to find out more on Dusty   Can't believe you haven't heard of 'chicked' with 25,000+ posts to your name Cinders. It features in a lot of race reports from male and female posters
