I just couldn't bear to throw on layer after layer to brave the 11 degree temperature this morning so I opted to run on the treadmill this morning. Sounds good, huh? Well, yes and no. I did get my planned 3 mile run in which is awesome, but I cheated. I have this horrible habit of holding on to the front of the treadmill about half way in. I hate doing it and I tell myself every time I get on I am not going to do it. My mind plays tricks on me, however, and before you know it, my arms stop swinging and grasp the front of the 'mill. I know it affects my stride in a negative manner because my knees tend to hurt after a treadmill run. That's one more reason why I hate treadmill runs.
Treadmill. Friend or foe?
