How To Get Through A Treadmill Run

Yeah, so that happened.

Show of hands, how many of you are training for a Spring full/half? I imagine a good portion of you are #BostonBound and eyeballs deep in frozen long runs about now. Sucks.

So what’s a runner to do if it’s insanely cold outside and all you got is a treadmill option or nothing?

Well, you do the treadmill work. You get on it, push start, and get your workout done.

  1. Download the Serial podcast. You’re welcome.
  2. Catch up on Downton Abbey. And The Americans. The entire season is available on iTunes.
  3. Call your Mom.
  4. Catch up with your BFF.
  5. Invite a slower/faster friend to join you. Birdie and I do this all the time. It makes the miles FLY and pace isn’t an issue.

How do you get through the treadmill long runs? I love a podcast. I love TV but I would be watching it on my phone or an iPad and it’s too small. I know. Picky, picky.

Quit complaining about the treadmill and go out and run!
