Happy Wednesday party people. Hope your week is going swimmingly.
As you probably know by now I like to run, some days love and some days HATE it. But those hate days don’t happen all that often. I am sure you also know by now that running on the treadmill (aka dreadmill) is not my favorite past time. Hello open roads, fresh air and the occasional other person running by.
But let’s be serious, its going to get pretty cold soon and the last thing I will be doing is heading outside for a run. I will have no choice but to plug away on the treadmill. I don’t know what it is but the treadmill bores me. I find I stop for walking breaks more often, and give up pretty easily.
The ONLY way I have found I can tolerate the treadmill for longer then 10 minutes is by shaking things up a bit, doing HITT, changing from running to walking, things that have me constantly changing the speed and incline so that I don’t realize that time has past.
I have been doing the following workout for a few weeks now and has yet to get old. It without fail leaves me feeling a sweaty mess and good about the time I just spent on the treadmill.
*feel free to change the speeds to better suit your needs*
Also my question regarding finding the indiglo on my Garmin was answered. Once the Garmin is on all you have to do is press the power button again and there will be light!
While googling “what age is it ok to start taking your dog on a run with you” I came across this website Pooch to 5k, which made me chuckle. For those of you who don’t know there is a popular website called couch to 5k which helps aspiring runners build up to a 5k distance!
Do you like the treadmill? What do you do to beat treadmill boredom?
Dog owners/runners how old was your dog when you started to run with him/her?
