Researchers have found that our minds process distance and time differently.  

When the finish line of a measured effort is in sight, you get visual feedback about how much farther you have to go, which spurs you to accelerate near the end.  

Time feedback, however, is discontinuous; you have to keep glancing at your watch. As a result, studies find that you're more likely to maintain an even pace throughout a time-based interval, but run faster in a distance-based effort.

If you need orthopedic help right away and want to avoid long delays in the emergency room, head to OrthoNOW! in East Syracuse at the Upstate Bone and Joint Center.
