It is officially Winter here in the Midwest. Okay, I guess it’s not TECHNICALLY winter but damn does it feel like it!
After last week’s freezing cold run I really tried to convince myself to run outside this weekend. Mother Nature had other plans and it snowed all day Sunday. As hardcore as I am, I really didn’t think 15 degrees would be a good idea. I remembered that a family member had a treadmill in their basement so I called them up & headed over.
I did a 4 mile run in just under 40 minutes, while I wasn’t going for time or speed I just figured I’d see how I felt.
I forgot how bored I get on treadmills! I did watch almost an entire episode of Madam Secretary. Has anyone else watched that? So good!
While I haven’t been running a ton, I’ve been working hard to complete T25. I just finished week 3 this morning and am feeling pretty good about it. The first week, every muscle I had was sore but now things are starting to feel a little better and I’m getting into the routine. If anyone is looking for a good winter supplement to their running I highly recommend it! I’m working muscles that I really didn’t ever use running.
We have a heatwave coming this weekend. There are rumors that we might see 50 degrees again! I’m looking forward to a run somewhere in there.
What do you watch/listen to while you’re on a treadmill?
