So running 12 miles on a treadmill is a little too much for my taste, but a good, fast 5 while watching a movie isn't bad! That is what I just did, and I actually enjoyed it. I had a brainstorm in the middle of my workout. M&M, we need to do our speedwork on treadmills at the Y! THIS is where I get my speed without getting injured! I just kept cranking the speed up and up until I ran my fastest mile to date (since the baby). Besides, I really do need to start using what I'm paying for (YMCA membership).
Why is it that people that own treadmills never use them? Is there an inherent non-exercising-curse that goes along with treadmill ownership? I could be totally wrong on this one, but... My parents (where I am currently staying) have one and I have yet to see one of them use it since I arrived 2 weeks ago. Two of my sisters own one and neither use theirs. The only person I know who owns one and uses it is Sticky Niki. Do any of you Marathon Mommies own a treadmill? Do you ever use it? If I were to ever get one for my house would I immediately give up running because treadmill ownership = lack of exercise curse?! Just wondering...
So, Chelle - are you ready for Saturday?! I'm getting excited! We drove down Provo Canyon today and it made me want to jump out of the car and run. It is so beautiful, and so beautifully downhill! In the last few years they have changed the course so there is a mile out-and-back in front of Bridal Veil Falls, which means there is one mile that is uphill. I had forgotten about that until I received a reminder email today from the race organizer. (Is english that person's first language? Sometimes he is really difficult to follow! Is that just me?) Anyhoo... when are we going to get together this week? What are you doing on Thursday? One idea that I'm knocking around is taking my kids to ride the chairlift at Sundance this week. That is kind of a big outing, but if you wanted to go, too, it would be fun to have you along. Or we could just play at a park if time is an issue.
I hope everyone is having a good running week!
