Foxwoods Day 2: The laws of physics suck

Todays post is going to be short and sweet so I can get out to the casino and take this place for a enough money to buy a really nice bike. 

I got up early again this morning (6:30) and hit the gym right away. The same guy who was on the bike yesterday was on it today, so I went to the treadmill. I never thought I'd see the day where I'd prefer a treadmill to anything, but for me, the 'bent is just not comfortable to ride.

As I mentioned yesterday, the machines in this gym are pretty nice. So nice in fact, that I now wish I'd brought a USB drive, because you can actually download the history of each workout onto a thumb drive. I'm not sure what I'd do with it, but I'm a big nerd so I would download it anyways. If I ever buy a treadmill, it will be one of these. 

The point of this thread though is that I did a 5k today. My time was 48:30, which is terribly slow. In fact, I've walked a majority of my 5k's faster than that, including some as low as 42 minutes. What's very promising though is that I was able to run 2 or more minutes at a time at 5 MPH. Plus, I walked pretty slowly between runs for the first 15 minutes. 

Either way, I got in almost a full hour of workout (including the cooldown), and ate pretty good yesterday. Today is a new day but it's already starting out to be a good one.

Oh, and tomorrow I'll post some of the pics of the scenery etc.
