Treadmill Conversion (Read 264 times)


I'm back!

    But since air resistance increases exponentially as speed increases, 

     

    Nit, air resistance increases quadratically, not exponentially. Power required to overcome it increases cubically.

      Do not cloud ignorance with hard facts.  How many ostriches have YOU coaches to survival from cheetah attacks??

        It's a much bigger deal for me that it's January outside, but it feels more like June when i'm on the treadmill at the gym. Completely different experiences.

          Please limit discussion to human runners and do not include bi-pedal birds, dinosaurs or mythical beings...

            Aren't nearly all birds bipedal?  

             

            As for treadmills, I have a footpod so I simply don't worry about what the treadmill says. I choose whichever one offers the best view.

             

            Is that "special" treadmill visually different from any of the others? I'd be so very tempted to get a couple friends to help swap it with another one in the room after work one day just to mess with the guy.

             

            Or I'd just pick up the banana and set it on a neighboring treadmill. What's he going to do, throw away his job over a treadmill?

              Bring a bunch of bananas and set one on each treadmill.  Sort of a random act of kindness that nicely blurs the possession implication of the fruit.

              Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.
