Making Peace With The Treadmill
I think it has happened. I think I am finally at peace with running on the treadmill. How do I know.....I successfully did 8.5 miles on the treadmill today and it didn't suck.
I guess it started while training for a May half marathon......too cold and windy for many outdoor runs. During this race I wanted to work on speed and found it nice to track my speed workouts with a little more ease on the treadmill.
Now that I am doing a marathon in San Francisco I am finding the treadmill useful in hill training. I like that the treadmill forces me to maintain my pace while I play with the incline. A very useful training tool!
Anyone else forced to "make peace" with the treadmill?
What are your favorite treadmill workouts?
