I know some people absolutely hate to run on a treadmill. I'll admit I am not just overjoyed by the idea, but when the choice is either run on the treadmill or don't run at all, well its not that hard to pick.
Introducing: Fat Girl's New Training Buddy!
(I think she needs an actual name though. So I can be like, "oh I'm gonna go for a run with _____." Or, "_____ really kicked my butt today.")
This is what I did today. I was running intervals hence the overall slow time. I also wasn't being too specific about it. I would run at a 6.5 for 4 minutes then back down to a 5 for a couple minutes. Ramp it up again for a while and then slow my pace. It kept it fun and I only had to stop once to take the dog out, refill a sippy cup, and fix the TV for the babes.
Also, notice the calorie burn. Does anyone know how accurate this is? I always thought that a mile equaled roughly 100 calories.
No its not the nicest most expensive model, but it is new and it is MINE!
My view from up here. Not too shabby. There are advantages to having a small house. Also, this baby folds up nicely into this corner I've stuck it in.
I tend to watch my feet a lot. It keeps me from checking the numbers too often. I also like to check out my legs. I feel powerful and fit knowing that they are working so hard.
Post workout after a towel off. It was a good one.
How about you? Treadmill or no way in hell?
