Surviving the "Dreadmill"!
It is January in
Days typically look like this... Illinois
The “Dreadmill” is my friend, because it is always there for me. It is there for me in inclement weather. It is there for me if I am not able to get out on a run without the kids. However, it is my enemy because the runs on it are so boring and seem so long. I love running outside! The "Dreadmill" is inevitable for a runner’s survival, though. How do I get through runs on the “Dreadmill”?
First, I cover up the display board with a towel or sweatshirt the minute I get up to traveling speed.
Second, I turn on my iPod and jam out to the best playlist I have.
Lastly, I never look at the display board. If I am going to run 3 miles, I listen to 12 songs. This has been a fool proof method for me to minimally get in three miles and sometimes four depending on my speed or if I forget what song number I was on!
So, what do you do to survive your time on the “Dreadmill”?
I would love to know!
