Woe is Me…Treadmill Runs

08-27-2014 1

Treadmill, treadmill, treadmill.  You know what I’m sick of?  The treadmill.  You know what keeps me coming back to the treadmill?  Being able to run.  I haven’t tried running outside since I joined the gym but I’m ready to back outside.  I miss fresh air, I miss keeping tabs on the goings on in my neighborhood.  I miss scenery.  But I’m not there yet.  Soon, my pretty!  Soon!

So after taking Tuesday off from the gym, I woke up yesterday morning (late again but that’s a different story) full of energy and more like myself than I have been in a while.  I increased my intervals on Monday to 13:2 x’s 3, 8:2 x’s 1 with 5 min warm up and 2 minute cool down.  I’m back in the 10/11 minute range including the walking.  And I’m feeling really good about it.

I hit the foam roller hard last night after my run.  I might have screeched a little bit when I hit a couple of really tight areas.  I’m pretty  sure I sweated it up more rolling then I did on my run but I’m feeling much looser today than I have been.  Stupid hip flexors have been really tight.

Magg lent her support during the rolling by letting me know that unless she can sit on my stomach, she finds foam rolling to be such a bore.  Yawn.

What’s awesome this week:

  • Rest days
  • Library books
  • lasagna
  • A clean house

What’s awesome for you this week?
