Yes. I did the unthinkable. I ran 5 miles on the indoor track of my gym on Saturday. I woke up to death clouds and decided to play it safe. Also, I am terrified to run alone, so I thought it was best to be inside. 52 laps later (I decided to run 50 minutes...so I got 5.2 miles in!) and one play list down on the iPod, I was done. I was not bored or dizzy. I was SHOCKED. How could I get through a run only with my music, no partner and def. no major thoughts. I think a break from the routine helped spice up my running life. I always run without music and lately, outside, with a partner.
Knowing Wisconsin, it will snow next week, so I should stick to the outdoors.
Today, I taught a lesson to a wonderful flute player then ran 4 miles in my teaching town. I was constantly looking over my shoulder, but I ran SO FAST. 34 minutes to get 4 miles in?! I was happy. And it was hilly!
So, Sunday was my rest day. D came home from his business trip for DCI finals. I was so happy he was back! I met him at his work to pick him up, only to find out that an ATV was left there so he and a coworker rode it around. I am a true Wisconsinite. I rode an ATV. In a skirt.
What can I say? I am a total class act.
Do you like running indoors? Or is the outdoors always calling your name?
