Increasing the speed is fun

It's always interesting when I crank up the speed on the treadmill.  I never know how I'm going to take it, no matter how long I've been at the lower speed.  Today, after about 10 minutes of bland 3 mph, I said, "heck, why not".  I cranked it up to 3.5.  It was nice for a while but after about 30 minutes I was like "yea, I'm not making another 30 minutes" so I went back to 3.  I might start working toward 3.2 again but I think 3.5 is still a bit off.  I hope to eventually get up to 5 and decrease my time on the treadmill (60 minutes @ 5mph ~= 90 minutes @ 3mph). 

Course it doesn't help that the humidity in the room skyrockets while I'm on the treadmill.  No matter how low it is when I get on it, my humidity/temp thingy says it's 60 something percent when I get off.  I can pretty much handle any temperature as long as the humidity is low.  60 is not low.
