it was a hard workout, but I think my counter on my machine for SPM is much different then the one listed here. In order for me to go 140 SPM, I would have to lift each foot more then twice per second - I'm not road runner here. Although I am able to run three miles in one day. I could only finish 3/4 of this workout, which means I will be returning to it to complete it. Thanks FitSugar!
