Treadmill running is never fun to me.... yes, I know I often complain of it! I mean, I have to run on a treadmill to get all runs in, but man, doesn't it seem like an eternity? I looked up pace conversions and found the following link that I snapped a picture: http://runneracademy.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/12/TreadmillConversionTable.pdf
I mean, I know at 6mph on the treadmill is equal to a 10min/mile pace, but I can never calculate the other pace conversions! And, it always seems like I am running faster than I actually am on the treadmill! Is this mental? I don't know! Seriously, it seems like forever when running on the treadmill! And you can't help when someone jumps on the adjacent treadmill to think that you are racing them, right?!? Yes, I did this today at a local gyn... HA! HA! And, why yes, I won!!! How do I know? Because they walked the whole time!!! LOL! Ok, I seriously need to listen to music with my iPod shuffle and not let my mind think crazy stuff like racing the person beside me!!
I did manage to get in 3 miles! Shhhhh, today was suppose to be a rest day! But, I felt spunky and said, "what the heck!"
I LOVE Pinterest!!! Not a day goes by that I don't probably pin something! I laughed out loud when I saw this. Yes, I know, I am a goober! Self aware!
Anyone else do this? I do all the time! I really think that I THINK too much when I run!! LOL :)
Well, time to get the evening routine going.... counting the days down to summer break!! Will be nice to have a break in the normal rush, rush, rush routine of homework, packing lunches, getting to school on time, getting to work on time, etc..... all you parents out there know what I mean!!
Do you "think" too much when running? Things that you wouldn't normally think about?
Do you race others on adjacent treadmills? (in your head that is)
Are you looking forward to summer break?
Have a GREAT NIGHT!!! Until larter.............
