Ugh. Ugh.

5 miles in 56:13. That includes a 3 1/2 minute warm up and 2 1/2 minute walk after mile 3 because I’m not sure my feet like my new running shoes. So…I walk at 3.3 mph…mental math (yeah right, I used paper)…4.67 miles in 50:13…10:45/mile, still slow but I’ll take it. Especially since I wanted to be anywhere else in the world today. Almost. There are some places I’m glad I’m not.  I know I’ll be slower outside without the belt of doom pushing me along. I’m dreading it.

I hope my shoes break in soon. My feet are not happy.  My shins said hi too, off to foam roller and stretch the crap out of my calves.

  1. You might be surprised – when I started running outside, I found that I actually ran faster. There was definitely a mental block for me on the treadmill, and once I got outside it was lifted. When will you start running outside?
