Mondays always start with a run on the treadmill. My week just isn’t the same if I don’t exercise on Monday. Today was no different; I was up and at ‘em early this morning. It was warm outside when I got up but like all other weekdays -- ADP was out the door before I even woke up and with young ones I was stuck on the treadmill.
I turned on the beginning of Friday Night Lights Season 3 and ran. I have finally figured out four miles is just about perfect for a show (with no commercials). I usually punch in 45 minutes because by the time the computer buffers at the beginning of the show I am a couple minutes into my run. I get to run and finish with a nice speed walk cool-down until the show is done (43 minutes).
I mentioned it was warm. Here’s proof (outdoor temp on bottom right, normal high is 31F).
I was hoping to go for a run outside when ADP got home from work, but it was a no-go. It was down pouring. I was ready to go so I hit the treadmill again. This time I planned on three easy miles. It was good to run a second time, but I would have rather been outside. There are lots of reasons I didn’t go outside to run; one of the biggest reasons is the last thing I need is to get sick because of running in the rain. This is next to our house; the “pond” (normally covered with grass) runs the whole length of our lot.
