This afternoon I was itching for a run, but the high temps made me weary of running outside. So off to the rec center I went! I was happy to see that all the treadmills were open!! I took this as a great sign. Usually I loathe running on the treadmill, but I keep hoping we'll one we'll put the past behind us and become friends.
I walked and talked to my mom on the phone for the first mile (16:00 minutes), and then I set myself at a 10:00 pace for the next two miles. It felt sooooooooooo good to be running. I had my iPod shuffle with me, and I was even dancing a bit on the treadmill while I ran. The last quarter of a mile I bumped my speed to an 8:30 pace, and again it felt sooooooo good. Not sure why this run felt so great, but it just did. I would have kept going, but it's the last night our family is in town so I kept the run short. Just hoping this is the first of many happy treadmill runs to come this summer!
