Streak day 51. 7.51 miles in 1:15:00.
For my last two runs on the treadmills at work, I've actually been using the "cool down" as an actual cool down. I ran 1 mile in 10 minutes, then reset the treadmill (60 minute session limit) for another 60 minute session at 6.1 mph, at a 1% incline.
When the hour was finished, I jogged the cool down at a -3% incline. Hopefully, this accomplishes two things: 1) actually gives my muscles a chance to cool down, 2) builds a little quad strength from the downhill running motion. I've haven't had a major problem with my knees so far, so building up quad strength is not a primary concern, but I figure that any strengthening that I do can help keep it that way.
