16...On the Treadmill...

I have a new treadmill record!  16 baby! 

On Sunday it was snowing and a little windy for me, so I decided to run at the gym instead.  I knew it would be tough to knock out 16 on the treadmill, but I was determined.  I got off at mile 13 to eat a few gummies and hopped back on to finish the remaining three.  Wow, I was drenched. 

I left the gym feeling super proud and went home to tell Ken about my run.  I told him that I am considering 16 on the treadmill a huge mental victory. 

My booty was a little sore yesterday, so I took the day off instead of a recovery run.  And, it is snowing here again!  I know we are not getting anything like the East Coast though, so I should not complain.  :)

nice! congrats on the new treadmill pr :) hope you can get outside some this week so you don't get too burnt out on the 'mill. i found myself hardly able to stand a mile after i ran 18-20 on it. needed a bit of a break. i definitely have to use 'treats' like gu chomps to keep me going mile after mile!

That is tough. Treadmills are great alternatives, but boring as all heck! You should definitely consider that a mental victory.

I can't believe how much of the US is getting blanketed in snow. We're moving on to spring here.

I am very impressed. I cannot imagine 14 on the treadmill. I'd rather freeze outside!
