The Treadmill

I used to hate it, but I think it's growing on me.

Here are the things I love about the treadmill:
  • Watching the calories burn up
  • Watching the miles fly by
  • Knowing exactly how fast I'm going

Things I don't love about it:
  • Having the opportunity to watch the time c r a w l by
  • Not actually going anywhere
  • It makes my legs hurt
Any pointers? What do you love and hate about the treadmill?

Small victories for today:
  • I hit 16 miles today (an average of 4 miles a day!)
  • Went for my longest straight run since I had surgery in September
  • Managed to increase my speed
Oh, the sweetest things :)

Treadmill stinks! But I wish I had one right now because it is freezing and I am having to the elliptical to make up for missed runs and I don't feel like it is getting the job done.

My advice DVR shows or movies that you like. I usually watch "chic shows" that my husband could care less about watching.

Keep up the good work!
