Treadmill Thursday

In an effort to make myself an overall better runner, and to do a better job training for marathon #2 I decided to work on my treadmill running today.  I would much rather run outside but there are days and circumstances that prevent me from always running outside.  I'd like to get better about the treadmill, but I know it will take practice.

I think I did really well today!  The whole last mile, I kept saying "one more minute, one more minute".  And it was brutally boring, but I kept running and did it!! :)

Miles: 5
Time: 53 minutes

Miles this Week: 8
Miles this Month: 37


  1. Hi Nicki! I recently found your blog when I was doing a Google search for info about a local race (I live in Roanoke). Congrats on your first marathon! That's awesome. I too have semi-recently discovered the joys of running and I ran my first half marathon this past November (the Star City Half). I saw that you also ran it, and what's even crazier is that you finished about 30 seconds in front of me! You can read about my first half experience if you'd like: I'm now training to do the Blue Ridge Half in April! Anyways, I just thought I would say hi and wish you the best of luck with your training! Keep up the good work!

  2. I really love treadmills! Kind of gives you that sense of jogging outside.. just without the wind or anything else! Thanks!
