This was my 60 minute treadmill workout that I try to do once a week. I do 2 minutes at 7 mph, 2 at 8 mph, 2 at 9 mph, and 4 at 10 mph I do this for 60 minutes increasing the speed .1 every 10 minutes so that the last 10 minutes are at 7.5, 8.5, 9.5, 10.5.

That sounds intense! It must be if you're getting 9.5 miles in an hour. Welcome to the blog!

It actually usually turns out to be 9.1 or 9.2 miles. But I count my half mile warm-up at 10 minute pace. I know it sounds demented to lots of people, but I love the treadmill. It really helps me focus.
