Dreadmill

Kansas City is super hot.  Time was short.  Hotel had treadmill.   It sucked.

Ran 3.1 miles @ 8:50/mile pace.
VFF Sprints, short sleeved shirt.

Crank up the grade to 11.5% and you'll make the 3 mile workout worth it!

Shoulda pulled a Jeff Walker and jacked it up to 11-12% grade...

I think it only goes to 5%. I did the run at 2.5%, but jacking it up more is a great suggestion. I just hate running inside and staying in one place.

I hear you, treadmills do suck. I place two blocks under the back of ours to get a -12% grade. This is a great way to pound the quads for and hour or so.

A treadmill in Kansas is the only place you will find an incline to your liking!

To me a treadmill and a road are about the same. Although it has been about 3 years since I've been on one, I don't mind them; the meditative mind-body connection happens without pretty scenery.

I stopped running on them because I seemed to get respiratory illnesses breathing everyone else's air.
