The outside run I did last week made me realize that I miss running! Streets and sidewalks are too icy and snow packed to do much outside (not to mention the cold!).
So tonight I went to my parents’ house and ran on their treadmill. I was okay for about 15 minutes, then it just seemed so boring!
How do people just run on treadmills only? Even with a TV on it was boring. I guess I am just used to actually going somewhere while running, and not being like a mouse on a wheel.
So this week I am doing a scary thing – taking a week off of strength training. The books I read suggest doing this every few months to prevent over training. This week I decided to rest those muscles. How ironic when most people are just joining gyms and working out and I take a week off LOL!
Still doing cardio, though. Going to New Orleans on Friday, and my sister and I are actually packing clothes to run in. I can’t believe it! I would never have dreamed of going running on a vacation before. Gotta burn off those beignets somehow.
