ME on a Treadmill?

It is no secret that I hate treadmills.  I cannot stand to run on them!  They bore me and I lose motivation and I slack off.  I have a cut off of between 5-10 degrees before I will use a treadmill.  Last night, it was much warmer (32) but it was 8:30.  Normally this doesn't bother me.  I have no problem running in the dark by myself but I was freaked out and decided to go the safe root and hop on the treadmill.  I went to the basement turned on the TV and hopped on the good ol' mill for 5 mile run.  4 at half goal pace (7:50-8:00) ..... it was successful...1/2 mile warmup  1 mile 8:00, 1 mile 8:00, 1 mile 7:48, 1 mile 7:48 and 1/2 mile cool down.  Hopefully in Arizona I can hold that pace....I am in semi-temper mode!   Hope everyone has a great weekend!  I am ready to head out to run in 50 degree weather in January!!


  1. Nice job with the treadmill run. You rock!!

  2. well speedster! seems like the treadmill works for you! I hated treadmills for the longest time...still do more or less. But they do force me to do speed workouts, with the numbers staring right at me.
