Dreading the Treadmill

My nemesis, the TREADMILL, I really can't stand running on it. Living in Indiana makes it nearly impossible to be a runner and not have to run on one at some point during our fabulous winters. The weather gets cold, the roads get covered in snow, the daylight is gone before you get home from work. Excuses excuses I know, but I don't use them to not run (just complain;) I still get my run on. I still get outside, even in the cold and the snow, on the weekends for anything over 3.5 miles. Today I ran my longest treadmill run at 3 miles, it was so incredibly boring, nothing to look at no one to talk to. I did it though, all 3 of them. I'm proud and I know I can do it now so there goes that excuse:).

I'm serious about my half marathon training for the first 6 months of the year, then I go right into Marathon training and to do this I am going to have to run on the treadmill. These are things that I more than WANT to do, I NEED to do them. It's time to take back me, this is how:).
I'm dreading the treadmill but I dread failing more so here I go!!


  1. i hear ya! I hate!!! the treadmill. I go slower, I tend to walk more, and I really struggle to not cut my workout short. I tend to play with the controls, inclines, speed, whatever to keep me distracted with on it.

    1. Mine is super old and doesn't have all of that:/ oh well it's 55 degrees today in Indiana so I'm going out for a run:)
