Nice! Just think, if you kept that 3-second decrease for about 25 more reps, you'd be sub 4! Sweet.

I'm pretty sure that at 5:12 my lungs and heart would have exploded.

Wow Rob - was that on a track or treadmill? Very fast miles for an old dude!

From Rob Murphy on Thu, Jul 21, 2011 at 16:07:17 from

That was on the treadmill. I'm not man enough to do that on the track.

But I did keep a 1.5-2 % grade.
