Beaten.

Quick pro tip #1:
Be constantly aware of the spin wheel rewards so you don't get caught off guard

Quick pro tip #2:
later on when either treadmill,wind or game speed gets difficultly high, jump constantly to reach one side of the far end of the laser, and when you see an opportunity to go left to right (or right to left, depending on reverse treadmill) make the run so it adds up to your calories multiplier.

Quick pro tip #3:
For the "Ten Spins, None of the Calories." quest, what you can do is not move at all, and when spikes come, either jump once or jump and at the same time press right (or left, depending on reverse treadmill) to gain some bearings, jump like that until you reach one far end of the laser, then you can just jump once until the treadmill takes you too close to the other laser.
So that's â' (W) near spike, and â'+â' ((W+D) near spike and to not go too close to the laser.

I also noticed if the game speeds up many times. It actually stops speeding up and sometimes returns to normal speed. Also, I could barely run on the treadmill at 27, but then it went to 41 and I ran on it fine (seemed like 18).

Once I figured this out, it helped encourage me to complete the quests, knowing the game works against itself.

I can't even get one quest... but a long time ago I would've had about 3 of the quests. How did my young mind do it?

Depends on which way the wind is going. If it is going against the treadmill then it helps you. If it is going with then it just really sucks.

Answer: Wind speed. The point gods are in your favor whenever wind and treadmill directions are in alignment.

I'm still working for the 50,000 point quest, though I've only gotten to about 47,000 points, I think.

Anything beyond 35k points is completely luck. I had to try around 40 times before I finally didn't get stuck with a ridiculous amount of speed increases.

This is the only game for which I may never try to achieve the quests. It's appropriately named (thanks John). I'm almost done with all of the other current quests, so it'd be nice if more came out so I don't end up grinding Saurus. I'll do it! I'll ...

Please don't make me.

I'm going to have to wait a few days before I try again...I was on 10,000 calories and the treadmill and wind speed was so high that I respawned IN THE LASER on the left and then literally couldn't get out of it, so as soon as the respawn safety wore off I died again.

A bit of advice for everyone having trouble with the 50k calorie quest.

Hold down the jump button when the treadmill isn't moving in a way you like. From that point, all you have to do is watch the spikes and time it so you land in front/behind them and not on them, and the wind speed. Only try for running on the treadmill when the wind helps balance you out, or if it's not pushing you one way or another too fast.
