I have also come to realize that I suck at running on the treadmill. Outside, I was able to reach a comfortable 10 min/ mile pace but on the mill I'm somewhat struggling with a 12-13 min/ mile pace. What gives? I thought running on a treadmill was supposedly easier than running outside?!
It doesn't help that I usually watch tv while I'm running and have to keep focused on what I'm doing or I'll get ripped off the thing. That almost happened when I was watching the Steelers last weekend. Not good! :)
Does anyone have any help for me?
My main struggle is that I had hoped to get faster over the winter but find myself only discouraged by my performance. :(
In more fun news, I made gingerbread with lemon sauce on Sunday!! :) It was quite yummy and as of this morning, my double batch of lemon sauce was gone and I need to make more. It's just sooo easy to eat the sauce right out of the pan! :)
|A taste test...|
Maybe if I can get my 'Treadmill Blues' under control, I will feel better about my performance and get more miles in.
I am excited for the HBBC to start up this weekend!! I'm debating on doing a 4 miler down in Lewiston but the high in Pullman is supposed to be 26 for the day, so that might not happen. :)
Any help/ comments/ suggestions would be amazing!! Thanks ahead of time!
