1.In show interface are you seeing input/output count increasing for both interfaces ?

2.You can usually use the show ip route command to find equal cost routes , as added by you as static default routes.

3.There is an asterisk (*) next to one of the route block entries . This corresponds

to the active route that is used for new traffic by the router.

4.The term 'new traffic' corresponds to a single packet or an entire

flow to a destination, depending on the type of switching configured.

5.For process-switchingload balancing is on a per-packet basis and the asterisk (*) points to the

interface over which the next packet is sent.

6.For fast-switchingload balancing is on a per-destination basis and the asterisk (*) points to the

interface over which the next destination-based flow is sent.

7.Based on routing table lookup for process switching packet will be sent to appropriate interface

HTH...rate if helpful..
