“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

Ten on the Treadmill

Not much to say about this weekend's long run, except I did it on the treadmill.  It had been a rough week, and I really just wanted to sleep in on Saturday morning.  But it was too dark to go do my planned miles outside on Friday night, so I sucked it up and got'em done on the treadmill.

Nothing really to report, except that perhaps watching four straight episodes of Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives on the Food Network seemed slightly counter-productive.  LOL.

Also, I accidentally deleted all my lap data on my Garmin before I finished, so I'm not completely sure on my total time, but I do know I was doing almost right at a 14mm.  So that's what I'm going with.

Friday's Treadmill Run:

  • 10 mi; 2:20:00 (approx.); 14min/mi avg. pace (approx.)


  1. I've never thought about using my garmin on the treadmill, I might give it a go!
    Congratulations on this looong run!!

  2. Charlotte - I like using my Garmin on the treadmill because it still keeps track of the intervals for me, even though it's not tracking mileage. I set it for the 5 second countdown so I have time to ramp up or ease down the treadmill speed. Happy Running!

  3. I'm heading off to the gym as we speak and I'll use the Garmin as a HRM! Let's see what it looks like on garmin connect afterwards.
    Thanks for answering!

  4. Great job getting the miles done!
