Last night I set my shoes to the side along with all the cold weather running gear I would need. Before falling asleep Jordan said it would be raining in the morning so I thought if she was right... which she normally is... I would need a Plan B. Bring on the treadmill.
I woke up to find the sky had opened up once again and the streets were flooding from another down pour. This has become something of a trend these days so I have been scouting out the local gyms to see where I will be guaranteed a treadmill.
So, this morning I got out early and hit the great indoors. It has been a while since I have been on the treadmill so it was mentally harder than the effort I was giving. That is a good thing because I was only keeping a pace around 8min/mile. slow, but I'm recovering from something of a pretty insane cold so I can take the stares and odd glances that aren't really happening but my ego says they are.
I put a solid 30 minutes in on the treadmill with 5 minutes warm up and cool down. This was the first run since December that I really felt good both during and after the effort.
Things could be heading in the right direction!
