Another 2,000+ mile year without a single step on a dreadmill (Read 1177 times)

    My alma mater has an indoor track that is 8 or 9 laps/mile. I wish we lived closer, as I'd much prefer that to the dreadmill. Though membership is still something like $60/month for alums (used to be something crazy like $30 for an entire year for the family of an alum, but that was probably a decade ago) and even more for non-alums, so even if we were close I'm not sure we could justify that kind of expense when the little 24/7 fitness center here is $48/month for both DH and I and has nice Cybex equipment and free weights.

    '19 Goals:

    • 5/7/2019 - lung lobe removed w/colorectal met

    • Continue showing Cancer that it's not welcome back. Ever.

    • Improve power:weight ratio

     

    Getting the wind knocked out of you is the only way to

    remind your lungs how much they like the taste of air.

    I've got a fever...

      Our Y track is 19 laps to a mile. I did 6 miles on it on Saturday. Ack. It doesn't bother my ankles, but DS16 ran for about 10 minutes on it and he didn't like it at all. I think I prefer the track to the TM.
      19 laps to a mile? (93 yards). I'd hurl.

      On your deathbed, you won't wish that you'd spent more time at the office.  But you will wish that you'd spent more time running.  Because if you had, you wouldn't be on your deathbed.

        19 laps to a mile? (93 yards). I'd hurl.
        Yep, pretty bad. It helps to be a slow runner in this case, though! Big grin

          Not really -- it means you're there longer! Shocked

                197.4 of my 1082.6 miles spent on the treadmill. I wish that wasn't so high. My problem isn't the weather it is the lack of daylight. I don't feel comfortable running the city around in the early morning or night by myself.
