Going the Distance on a Treadmill
Up until a couple of days ago the longest I had ever run on a treadmill was 8 miles. Treadmill running just seems so...tedious, uneventful and well, boring. This past Saturday however, it was so cold outside I wimped out. I decided to do 10 miles on the treadmill and then 10 miles outside. Well my wussiness got the best of me. At 10 miles I looked outside and it didn't look any warmer so I kept going. An hour and a half later I had run 20 MILES ON A TREADMILL and I couldn't believe it! It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. I switched off between music and t.v. to keep my mind busy. So if you're a wimp like me about the weather but don't think you can run 20+ miles on a treadmill, I hope this post helps you take courage and just go for it. It wasn't that bad...I'm not going to make a habit out of it... but it wasn't that bad.
