Hotel Treadmill Running - Part Deux
Well here I am, back in Virginia but this time in a different hotel. This treadmill gives me 99 minutes plus 2 for warm down. I worked late last night after getting up early - so I slept in today....my run was going to be what I could get in after work.
So I got on the treadmill (one of 4) and started my run. Seems like I can run forever on a treadmill. I ran and ran - watched 3 different people start and end their treadmill run in the 101 min I was there....
The results were super! I ran 8 miles in 88:30 min. The first time I have finished 8 miles in under an hour and a half in a long time. Then in the time I had left I finished another mile - hitting 9 miles in just over 99 min. I am sure the hotel folks thought I was crazy, running on a treadmill for over an hour and a half. It felt really good, though! I felt like I ran away lots of the stress I have accumulated in working long hours and being away from home.
Overall a good mid-week run. Tomorrow I head home for a few days before returning again on Sunday afternoon. I will be staying in yet another hotel...(sigh).
No digestive / fainting issues - slightly sore shin (yes left side, all my aches are on that side).
