Running or Lack There Of


I originally didn't post because I haven't been running near as much as I want to, and with anything once you quit doing something it is so easy to fall into a routine of continually not doing it.  The last time I hit over 30 miles in a week was back in July the week I ran the 50k.  I've still been running probably enough to maintain my current fitness level along with some light strength training every week.  However this is not where I want to be.  I want a solid 40+ miles a week and I know that means sucking it up and running on the treadmill.  I have a solid preference for running outside, if I'm really getting picky I like a trail but the streets aren't to bad.  My 2nd choice would be running circles around the YMCA.  I'm allowed to run around the building while Gretchen is in childcare.  4.5 laps around = 1 mile.  Way better than my final choice, the treadmill.

Running around this building better than 

running on this but not near as good as

running on this.

  1. The pictures really helped me understand! :) Maybe you should redecorate your treadmill space? Paint the floor green like grass and hang some large nature photos. Can you put the treadmill in the backyard? ;)
