Today’s run (treadmill): 2.41 miles
Despite the inherent lack of variables of the process, not all treadmill runs are the same. Yesterday’s run was very different from today’s. For one thing, I wore my Brooks Adrenaline’s instead of the Karhu’s and realized how much the right shoes matter when running on the treadmill. Second, I had no issues with fatigue this morning and I jumped into a faster pace from the beginning. The biggest difference between today and yesterday is that today I felt like I was running. Not running in the treadmill sense, where your are physically and mentally constrained within an area no wider than a 22″ tread and no longer than the safety cord allows. I was able to focus on my form and actually pictured the streets in my neighborhood as I ran along. If nothing else, it helped pass the time. For me, anything that speeds me through a treadmill run is a good thing.
