History shows that January is treadmill month

 

Today’s run (treadmill) 3.25 miles

Today has been an interesting day, due to an odd combination of business and non-business related happenings. Amidst this jumble, I managed to work in a treadmill run. Although the roads are fairly clear, we saw snow overnight that made street running dangerous and sidewalk running impossible.

I’ve been somewhat frustrated by this January’s weather that has forced me off the road and onto the treadmill so often. I looked at Garmin Connect and was a little surprised to see that 70% of my runs this year have been indoors. Curiously, a search of last January showed that I did the same percentage of treadmill runs in 2013. That made me feel slightly better.

The good news about frequent use of the treadmill is that it eventually becomes a manageable routine. I’ve found myself getting more comfortable with the different cadence and a more restricted stride. It’s always a good workout and a safer way to get my miles than the road these days. I wouldn’t go so far as to say that I’m liking these workouts, but I have started to appreciate them.

    I think it is awesome that you have still been running all month even on the treadmill. I started the year sick but I have lost my mojo and that is bad because I leave for Ragnar in 7 days!! 13.1 miles at one half marathon is all I have run in January!!!
