So this is my treadmill, affectionately names "TR," and the bane of my existence lately. TR and I have been through years of ups and downs, and this winter just has not been a good one for us.
Last night, I tried to put in my miles. I really did. But mentally, I was totally defeated. How is it that one can run 8+ miles in freezing temps, wind, hail, snow and ice, yet fails to run a measly mile on the mill.
Last night, I turned to my peeps at DM and here are some thoughts / suggestions they came up with:
The Una Runner: "drop it off the roof."
Shawna L: "intervals"
Esther J W: "I am much faster and less bored outside"
The Una Runner: "glad I live down south" (warmer)
Scott S: "check out these DVDs - http://www.vafitness.com "<--- I did, and an awesome idea!!
Killer: "dreadmill. enough said."
Michael S: "if you get a good answer to that one, let me know."
Ihopeagain: "these last 7 weeks of jogging outside have made me a convert."
Jeni: "I make sure to have Pandora radio turned on"
Mark H: "Im real close to going with Una Runners suggestion"
Jocelyn: "I put a towel over the timer and guess how much time is left"
The comments go on, but Im sure you get the idea: I am not the only one who has a mental barrier with treadmill running!
If you have any other ideas, please, throw them my way!
