Two More With The Treadmill

I cut my run short this morning because I wasn’t sure if I had a meeting — it turns out I didn’t, but that’s okay. I worked from home this morning because the weather isn’t ideal (as you can tell from the photo): the roads were wet when I left and 12 miles up the road were ice. Winter weather is beautiful, but I appreciate it more when I don’t have to drive with other people in it.

So I headed down to the fitness center for a date with the *sigh* treadmill. It wasn’t too bad, but not excellent. I’ve already matched the number of runs this January that I did all of last January. So I think, regardless of method, that’s an improvement.

Making Peace With The Treadmill

I’ve never really liked running on the treadmill, but I’ve decided to try to make peace with it for the near term. It was supposed to be nice today, but the temp doesn’t factor in the breeze and overcast skies. So I opted to use the treadmill in the gym. If there’s an upside to that, it’s the ability to control the pace. I opted for a relatively slow pace (~12m/mile), and I did 3 miles.

There’s not much else to report about it. I doubt this will be a regular thing (the last time I ran on a treadmill was March of last year); but I can’t let the weather “win” any more. I have too much training to do!
