I was supposed to meet up with a friend after work yesterday for a quick 3-mile run, but she had to cancel and it was pouring rain, so I decided to hit up the YMCA for a treadmill run. I do not like the treadmill. Not even a little bit. Not only is it So. Freaking. Boring. but I feel like it messes up my stride. 

Once before I managed 6 miles - looking back I have no idea how. I am trying to make friends with it so that on days like yesterday I can still get a run in, but it's kind of like that kid you were forced to hang out with because your mom was friends with his mom, only when the moms weren't looking he would steal your cookies and pull the heads off your Barbies.

So anyway, I got my 3 miles in. Watching Yes, Dear made it marginally better, but not much. Maybe an iPad with Netflix would make it better? Maybe, but I don't have an iPad and there is not one in my future, so I guess I will have to keep playing stupid mental games with myself when I am forced to dreadmill it. I did push the pace a little bit (mostly to get done quicker) so that felt good.


How do people do it? I'm trying, but honestly, I'd rather run in the rain!

  1. We cleaned out our basement last weekend, where the dreadmill here is located. After the purge I was vacuuming and saw a big fat huge nasty pointy legged spider on the wall 3 feet from my eyeballs. I screamed, threw the vacuum at Randy and ran away. He then sucked an equally nasty spider off a wall on the other side of the room. I'm too scared to use the dreadmill now.
