>General Running>Treadmill "hills"
I've got a fever...
On your deathbed, you won't wish that you'd spent more time at the office. But you will wish that you'd spent more time running. Because if you had, you wouldn't be on your deathbed.

I'm running somewhere tomorrow. It's going to be beautiful. I can't wait.
According to the original Bruce protocol, the patient walks on an uphill treadmill in a graded exercise test with electrodes on the chest to monitor the EKG. Every 3 minutes, the speed and incline of the treadmill are increased. There are 7 such stages and only very fit athletes can complete all 7 stages.
Jeff, you were asking about VO2 max in a different thread. You can calculate your VO2 max from a Bruce protocol as well using the link I posted above. How does that estimate correlate with the ones from this site?
Do you remember how many minutes you went before they stopped?
what's Swedish for "hill play", I wonder?
hill play = kulleleka (?)
hillside run = backslutning lopp (?)
You'll ruin your knees!

Did this last night ... made an otherwise fairly easy run really TOUGH!!
Anyone else do "hills" on the treadmill, and have workouts you'd like to share??</snip>
Life is short, play hard!
