Keywords: randomized block
An experiment is conducted to compare the energy requirements of three physical activities: running, walking and bicycle riding. Eight subjects are asked to run, walk and bicycle a measured distance, and the number of kilocalories expended per kilometre is determined for each subject during each activity. The activities are run in random order with time for recovery between activities. Each activity was monitored exactly once for each individual.

Well behaved data with very significant differences between treatments (the three treatments do not overlap in response values). Invented data?
