I woke up to a thunderstorm.....

I know.

Suck.

I knew the weather was going to be bad today, but I was hoping it would hold off till the afternoon. I had 10 miles in mind for today, so I got up, ate my breakfast and headed to the YMCA to run it out on the ole DREADmill. It really wasn't to bad. I listened to my ipod and watched 'Monk' re-runs on the TV in front of me. (love that show)

I took a GU before I left the house and then at mile 5, I stopped the treadmill, went and peed, came back and took another GU and started back up again. I can't believe I am going to admit this, but I kind of missed my hills.

10 miles on the treadmill: 1:30 min.

Your awesome I ran 2 then bike and rowed and play a little b-ball. Not the best workout but it was a good saturday workout.

Stacey said...

I've never run 10 on the treadill, 9 is my longest. I had similar weather this morning, but I just couldn't face the gym again. I ran in the rain for 8 miles. Soaked to the skin. You run was probably better!

I'm looking at 9 on the 'mill this morning -- thanks for showing me it can be done and be OK!

Hi, lady. Sometimes it takes a lot of mental toughness to get through a long treadmll run. The longest I did was 13, watching confrence. If it was me, I would have skipped. Luv ya

Thanks for stopping by my blog! =)

I also blog about once or twice a week on a good week. I just don't have much to say lol

10 miles on the treadmill.... wow you're my hero! I struggle to do 3!! I hate it.

BTW I'm new to the blog but I really like you tattoo!! What's the meaning of the draw above the 26.2??? I've been wanting to get a foot tattoo for a while. I'm just afraid of the pain. I have 3 other tattoos but in places where there is a lot of 'fat' ;-) so it is not painful at all lol

That is a long way to run on the treadmill. Way to get ti done! Breaking it up in the middle must have helped.

That is the farthest I have gone on a treadmill, too. I had a friend to run next to so it wasnt all that bad. I did find that she and I kept upping the speed because we didn't want the other person to finish earlier.:)
