Cure for Treadmill Boredom

Last nights workout:
3 miles in 32:17 (10:46 pace)

Three words.

Best. Run. Ever.

I was avoiding last nights run like crazy. My food did not feel settled at all, so I was completely expecting it to be a run full of slider burps. That made me dread it even more. 10 pm rolled around and I decided it was now or never. I laced up and hopped on Betty for 3 miles of FARTleks.

Amazeballs. I did a one mile warm up in about 12 minutes. I kept it niiice and easy. Then I did about 5 bursts of sprints for various distances, followed by a short cool down. For the first time in pretty much forever, my cool down was a slow run instead of walking. I felt so comfortable cooling down that way. Don’t get me wrong… I kicked my ass while I was sprinting. It was hard but my legs never complained.

Since I am such a lover of my treadmill, I thought it was only fair to share the secrets to my love affair.

How to stay entertained on the treadmill:

Oh yes. I have started watching The Vampire Diaries and it is so flipping good. I force myself to ONLY watch it while I’m on the treadmill. Needless to say, I have not missed a scheduled run yet! Hubbida Hubbida.

I can’t wait for tomorrows run because I left off at a super exciting part. The Netflix app for my iPhone is pure genius. Fo’ real.

Have you seen Vampire Diaries?!

  1. When you run that late, don’t you find that it takes awhile for you to fall asleep then? I struggle with working out past 8pm and falling asleep after.

    Never seen Vampire Diaries, but I usually watch Teen Mom or Jersey Shore while on my treadmill.

    • For some reason, I have no problem passing out right after working out. I think it helps calm me down or something after a crazy day at work.

      If you like Teen Mom and Jersey Shore then I think that Vampire Diaries will totally interest you!! You should definitely check it out!!

  2. LOL…this is awesome…I LOVE VP Diaries and I’m not afraid to admit it! I don’t have cable so I go to the gym every Tuesday night to watch Real Housewives of Beverly HIlls on their TV…hehe.

  3. Ha! I love it. I watch and read anything designed for teenagers, so yes I’ve seen it! 🙂 weren’t you the one who told me to read pretty little liars?! I’m on book #3….! At the gym yesterday some 12 year olds were talking about who they though A was and I pretended to have nooooo idea what they were talking about!
