LRM Training Run #4, Treadmill Tempo


LRM Miles Trained To Date: 15

Today I opted to do my tempo run on the treadmill at the gym. Why? Because I forgot how much I disliked treadmill running. Regardless, I will try to find something positive about the experience: it kept me out of the misting rain.

I did the 3 miles at a pace of 11:30, on average. I kept wishing I was outdoors. That's best for me... there is always something to look at (like oncoming traffic). Today I watched a documentary about the Statue of Liberty. I learned a lot about immigration!

I am totally with you. Outside is much more interesting! But the treadmill is a nice alternative when running outside doesn't work!

It's usually an issue of time that puts me on a treadmill, especially when I'm at a hotel and there's no running routes available. I also like to say to myself - that an hour on the treadmill is a whole lot better than an hour in a restaurant... It's better than doing nothing! Keep Burning!!
