Thatâ€™s all I could think as I tried to plow through 5.0 miles on the treadmill. Iâ€™m going crazy! Iâ€™m going crazy! Arrrrrrgh. Felt like I was truly losing my mind. I greatly admire those who can run on the treadmill, but I am simply not that woman.
I tried a bunch of my old tricks (which are summed in nicely in this post)â€¦
Listened to NPR. Interesting, but didnâ€™t do the trick.
Listened to my favorite song on blast and repeat.
I ended up with a total ear worm but was still bored.
Ran through to do lists and shopping lists and grand plans in my mindâ€¦ Still bored.
I got off after 2.5 miles and hoofed it upstairs to finished on the indoor track.
YOU GUYS!!! Indoor track > Treadmill (at least to me). It was so much more fun.
I really need to run the track more often. I thought Iâ€™d feel like a hamster on a wheel (it takes 12 laps to run a mile) but it wasnâ€™t bad at all.
Do you feel like a running ninja if you wear all black? I do.
See? Ninja! <— (I had fun reading this flashback post of when Megan and I ran 20 miles in preparation of our first marathon. 2009 seems so far away.)
So, in total, I ran 5.0 miles today. Which felt pretty good considering how mentally tough it felt.
On the way off the track, I spotted this fun track workout. Looks super challenging.
Let me know if you give it a try â€“ I want to test it out soon, too!
So â€“ any treadmill fans out there? What about indoor track addicts? And Iâ€™m sure thereâ€™s at least one or two running ninjasâ€¦.
