“A person should set his goals as early as he can and devote all his energy and talent to getting there. With enough effort, he may achieve it. Or he may find something that is even more rewarding. But in the end, no matter what the outcome, he will know he has been alive.” - Walt Disney

Working Late = Treadmill

And that stinks, but that's why we have one: for the times when running outside just isn't an option.  I have a huge project going at work, which of course, equates to a huge deadline in a couple weeks.  So that means staying a couple hours late every day, with non-game-day-Saturdays at the office a definite possibility...  So, on weeknights when I get home late and it's too dark to run outside, it's over to the treadmill for me.

It's not that I mind the treadmill itself - there's a TV in there, so it's not as boring as it could be.  What I mind is that I'm actually slower on the treadmill - the opposite of most people!  I'm wary of going above 5mph, which is significantly slower than my running pace on the trail.  Oh well, as long as I'm getting it done, that's what counts, right?

Today's stats:
  • 0.55mi warm-up walk
  • 2.5mi run; 0:36:03 min; 14:25min/mi
