Today was overcast and it was raining when I got out of work, so I thought I would try running on the treadmill to see if might be a possibility for training this winter. I tried, I really did. I ran for a little over a mile and then just couldn’t bear it. I even tried changing the incline and running faster to get it over with. It was so not fun. Never again.
Luckily I got home and there was a little break in the clouds so I put my shoes back on, grabbed Shea and took off for a run around the greenbelt outside my house. Only 1.4 miles but I had to do something to get that awful treadmill running out of my head. I ran fast and took in the cool air like it was the best day of my life.
Sorry DREADmill, but never again. Sub zero temps, running on the road? Bring it on!
