A Treadmill workout

I did a treadmill workout today. I have been feeling a little bland about the treadmill workout. I like it because it's so efficient and does a great job of burning calories, but I've been frustrated because it's so damn bland. Well, I tried something new today. I did the 2-3 pattern, but on each 3, I changed the intensity. It's really weird, but that subtle change was enough variety to keep it interesting. The first runs were 6.0, 6.5, and 7.0, as were the second. The third set I did both of them at 6.0, since the workout room in Bozeman is in the same place as the pool and it was ultra humid. Seriously. But I had a weird feeling as I was running. I got this weird feeling that I was going to make it the entire 45 minutes. No matter how tired I was getting, I was going to make it. And I sure did.

Hopefully more running tomorrow.

Funny how mixing it up during a workout and making it harder sometimes makes the whole workout more interesting. You'd think it would just make it worse.

How annoying though to have the workout room all hot and humid! Good thing you didn't let it get in your way.
