Hello Treadmill, My Old Friend...


The sun may be shining, but that temp scared the crap outta me. So, the first day back will be on the ol' trustworthy treadmill. How quickly I forget how easy it is to just jump right on her...just a running bra and shorts, socks, shoes, doorag n water. Life is good.

Did 3 miles....no noises from the legs. Gave myself a lot of time afterwards for some good stretches.

The pup remembered too. Got right back up into his old spot and didn't seem to mind one bit that I wasn't taking him out for our 4 mile run. I'll have to work on that tho, don't want to see him putting on some poundage....his health is important too.

In case you've noticed, I purchased a digital camera over the weekend. This is way too fun!!!!

So how did the feet, new shoes, and inserts do?

Lora said...

oko...legs felt good, shoes are real good, inserts (they're really orthothics but saying that makes me feel real old) are real cushy

so far so good...but I've learned my lesson well---STRETCH n STRENGTHEN!!!

Glad you purchased a camera so now we will get more information! Nice dog (mmmm what about a black dog for a black knight?) and beautiful Asics shoes. I agree, to dress for the treadmill is the easier thing of the world.

Stefano....he's a Portugese Water Dog, created to keep Portugese sailors company on their long journeys on their boats. A wonderful companion, with amazingly intense eyes.

Don't be afraid of the cold. Cold is your friend. Get warmed up good first, then let the cold pull you along - you'll be able to run faster without overheating.

Good run on the treadmill though - how do you deal with the boredom?

I dont usually have trouble with boredom. I cherish being alone, so my thoughts usually carry me through. I tend to work out things that are on my mind, tho I usually keep the radio on in the background. Granted--I think the longest I've run on the treadmill is 6 or 7 miles. Any longer I'd consider a great book on tape.
