Treadmills… Ugh!

So, due to the remnants of Hurricane Isaac, we got 24 hours of rain.  Since we are weak, we decided to go run on treadmills vs. rain and wind.

There I learned I hate treadmills.  I don’t know what it is, but I think my gait was significantly changed.  That and I learned that pause really only means pause for five seconds.  After that, it means start your run over.  Since I am a stats geek, that was very … ugh…

So, my left knee started bothering me.  Plus, it was hot and no breeze.  I yearned for the outside. Despite putting up with traffic, humidity, hills, other people, etc., I would take that any day over the monotony of the treadmill.

So, now I am going to have a mental block on running on the treadmill.  Which is going to suck as the weather gets crappy and we have to start putting out 20 mile days.  Oh well…
