zoning out on the treadmill
I really didn't feel like running today. It was already bad enough that I dragged myself outside yesterday to do a run during my lunch break. I had decided to change up my usual course around Uptown and ended up finding all uphill parts and none of the downhill parts. Awesome. So of course today I didn't want to deal with that again so I took the easy way out and headed to the YMCA. I somehow found one empty treadmill (it was after 12pm by the time I got there and the gym was packed with the lunch crowd) and hunkered down. I set the timer for 28 minutes and started running while watching the usual Food Network programming (today was Paula's Best Dishes). The time dwindled down and before I knew it I had ran 27 minutes and slowed down the pace to walking as a cool down for the last minute.
