The question is: will this make me faster?

Run #1
  • 59m
  • 7.25 miles
  • 08m 08s /Mi

The plan was to run 14 miles today. I didn't have time to do it in the morning because I had a meeting at 10:50 at the hospital. It was too hot to run outside in the afternoon, so I started out on the treadmill, planning to do 14 miles. At about the halfway point, the treadmill motor started making a loud noise. That made me worry about the health of the motor, so I stopped it. I'll try to do the rest tonight, but obviously, running 2 7-mile runs is not as good as a 14-mile run. Also, I'm a little upset that my treadmill can't handle a 2 hour run. I got a pretty decent model with a motor that goes up to 12 MPH, so I would think 2 hours at 7.5 would be reasonable.

Run #2
  • 55m
  • 6.75 miles
  • 08m 09s /Mi

Finished my 14 mile run at night. Unfortunately, the same problem with the motor happened at about 50 minutes. I guess I'll have to get the treadmill serviced. It has a lifetime warranty on the motor, so hopefully it can be fixed relatively painlessly.
