Short run on the treadmill. Walked 0.5 miles, then ran one mile @ 6.2mph/1% grade as warmup. I was feeling really, really good, so I bumped the treadmill up to 8mph. I felt fine for the first 0.6 miles, then... THE TREADMILL BROKE. Totally stopped working. No lights, nothing. I moved to the other treadmill but it wouldn't go faster than 4mph. [sigh]. Finished by doing a light jog around the block. Total time ~30 minutes.

I'm fairly pleased with the way my body was dealing with the 8mph stretch. My HR was steady @170, which is fine considering I'm at least 10 pounds overweight and haven't done ANY faster running lately.
