Wooohooo! I beat my personal record for most miles logged (consecutively) on a treadmill. TWENTY MILES. Woah. Thankfully I had the
super small gym to myself most of the time & control of the TV remote (hallelujah!). I broke my run into segments since my treadmill couldn’t run non-stop like me 😉 Kidding, kind of… the machine only runs for 90 minutes at a time. The breaks were great, though. It forced me to break up the 20 mile run into nicer, easy to handle segments rather than thinking of it as ONE LONG RUN. It was also a nice chance for me to refill my water bottle. At one point, the treadmill started to smell a little funny…kind of like it was being over-worked. Then I looked at the bottom of my brand new Brooks after my run… Whoops.
Anyway, after my run I celebrated with a quick lunch followed by a light nap. The awesome & supportive hubs then treated me to a nice dinner of pasta, sausage, and veggies. 🙂 Considering how relaxing this afternoon & evening was, it makes me want to run 20 miles every day. Ok not really.
Like those obnoxiously hot pink socks? Yep, bought those pups today at Fleet Feet. I’ve never done compression socks but after reading multiple posts on Monica‘s blog, I decided to give it a whirl. They feel great, no complaints
yet, but I’ll let you know if I think they actually do anything. Besides look great, that is. 😉 Alright, it’s time for me to get back to my laying-on-the-couch-doing-nothing phase. Tomorrow morning, I’m making a recipe from Gina’s cookbook:
Questions for you:
– Love compression socks? Hate ’em?
– What’s the longest distance you’ve gone on a treadmill?
