Yearly Reminder of How Much I Hate Treadmills

Because I had to transport equipment to a school competition in Bangor, I drove instead of riding the bus with the students and the other teachers. I beat them all here, and had time to hit the treadmill for a second run before they arrived.

Man, I hate these things. Apologies to anyone reading this who likes them, but sorry, these things are not for me. Way too monotonous, even if ESPN was on the little TV thingy above the console. Plus, you're indoors.

That all being said, I'm grateful that I was able to sneak in a second run today, and the dreadmill allowed me to so while still being here in case the kids arrived earlier than I thought they would.

Will try to get in a short run tomorrow. Half marathon on Saturday. Yeehaw.

Ran 5.0 miles @ 7:52/mile pace.

I've been on the treadmill 5 days a week this winter. Not terribly exciting, but for me I find cranking the grade helps the time pass. Good luck in the half!

I don't know how you do it, Kevin. But you obviously get good results.
