I’m almost positive that the treadmill could be considered a torture device in some places, specifically in my living room.
I told myself over the weekend that this
would had to be the week that I took my life back and got back on my training plan. I can not have Women’s Half Marathon repeat. I will not go in undertrained once again.
So, because this week is the week of my “come back” I had to run 7 miles last night. No excuses for not getting it done. I was hoping to leave work @ 4 and get the 7 done outside. I left @ 4:30, but I had to go to the grocery store so I didn’t get home till after 5. Running in the dark is not my forte. I had been telling myself all day long that 7 miles on the treadmill was happening and I could do it.
I meant to rent a Redbox movie while I was at walmart, but I forgot.crap. I asked my Dad to let me dig through his movies to find one I haven’t seen so I could tolerate the mileage. I found some Nicholas Cage movie and got to work. one word. brutal.
My very own personal torture device.
I took breaks every 2 miles. I had to break up the monotony. I got off and took little water breaks, checked my email and twittered. I felt really good during my run. Good, like, i wasn’t having any pain. Mentally I was dying. The movie was just meh, but it held my attention for the most part. I was sweating like it was summer outside, it was disgusting. This is my longest run on the treadmill and I have to say I’m a little proud of myself for getting it done, even if I did have to take breaks. toot toot.
7 miles, 66:22 – 9:26 pace. I’m also very happy to report that I had absolutely no hip pain and I have not felt any today either, can I get a HIP HIP HOORRAAAY!!!!!!
Tonight is a easy 2 miler. Hopefully I can get this done outside, if not, hi ho, hi ho back to the treadmill I go.
Due to my run on the treadmill last night’s dinner was left over chicken & yellow rice for Chris. I had cereal, yum! Tonight I’m planning on a super delicious chicken noodle soup.
Alright. I have to go. I’m annoyed right now, and this post will turn into a huge rant about stupid things that are said from people who have no clue what they are talking about. I don’t need a big political debate going on in my blog.
Happy Thursday Ya’ll
