Further evidence that I have this weight-loss thing figured out now (but virtually nothing else in my life).

Sidebar to the sidebar: I am in love with the dwarf names and will probably still think of all my clients that way long after I get tired of blogging about it.Anyway, I had time to walk 4½ miles on the treadmill at the gym, including a little over half a mile of running in short intervals. I'm figuring out that the only way to get fast is to run fast, even if it's only in short bursts at first. So once every mile, I set the thing for 8.7 mph (a 7-minute mile) and then just went as long as I felt like it at that speed. It's not a sprint, but maybe close to 90% effort, which is apparently enough to get good results.
