I have a really great treadmill at home. It's a Nordic Track iFit. Yet I don't think I even stepped foot on it while training for either one of my marathons. Yup, I discovered that I'd rather run in rain, snow, and 30 degree weather than run miles on a treadmill. However, since I started the fitness challenge at work with my MisFit, the treadmill has become my best friend.
I forgot how convenient the
TM is when I need to get a few (thousand) more steps in to meet my goal. I have been working hard to not just reach the 10,000 steps but to exceed it. This weekend I got up early and did 5 treadmill miles each day so I could get those 10,000 steps out of the way and then everything else I do all day is just extra.
Because I've been so concentrated on getting my "steps" in, I've been walking/running/biking, and have not been lifting or stretching like I should. Also, because I have been so concerned with "steps", I've lost track of "mileage". This is what I have remembered to track so far.
20.5 miles Run/walk
33 miles on bike
I'm still dealing with a little bit of foot pain but I notice when I run faster on the treadmill the pain is less. Which is funny because when I run on the road, it's more. It must be something with the surface.
I know Lacey got it two long runs this weekend.
1-11 mile run
1-14 mile run
Since she is not currently training for anything long distance I admire her willingness to go long!
In other news, I bought a book from Audible.com this weekend and as Scott was downloading it to my ipod, he accidentally deleted all my music on my ipod. It was one of those moments where I kind of knew he didn't know what he was doing and should of kindly asked him to "step away" but before I could say anything, it was all gone! O well, I wanted to be mad but I calmly just decided it was time for me to refresh my playlists anyway. On the bright side, I have a new book I've been wanting for a while now. Its only a little over 2 hours long so I am saving it for when I do a long run or walk! -M
