I love starting a week with a run, even if it is a treadmill run like the one I made myself do today. The treadmill has truly become the dreadmill to me and I hate the thought of going on it and the thought of keeping going on it when I’m on it!
I wanted to do 5 miles this morning and the pavements are still icy, so I decided I’d do an easy run on the treadmill instead. When I drove into the car park at Bella I skidded all over the place, so I’m glad I didn’t attempt to run in it! On the treadmill I put the incline to 1.0 and ran at 11.5kph (7.1mph) until it got to 8.1km.
I was watching the news… wee Sian and Bill on Breakfast telly, so it managed to take my mind off the dreadmill.
Nice and steady, I finished in just under 43 minutes. 🙂
A great wee start to the week. 😀 Tonights it’s leg weights in the gym. Looking forward to it.
