Wow...I actually didn't call it the dreadmill.
Doug was headed to the Y tonight so I thought I would go as well to loosen up these legs. They have been feeling very heavy and tired. Grabbed my iPod and off we went. Hopped on a treadmill that had the tv already going, threw in my tunes and cranked up the speed. Things were feeling pretty good so I thought I would attempt my 2nd 800 meter repeat tonight. I'm fully aware it was only my 2nd, but I think the speed I'm running...it'll be doable to get 10 completed. So it looks as if I will be making a weekly trip to visit my new love (okay...now that's stretching it). But I've noticed if I have my iPod, the tv going and trying to do 800 meter repeats, I get a little sensory overloaded. Which is way okay with me and it makes the time fly by. And hopefully with my repeats, I'll be flying by in my next marathon.
This is a huge commitment for me. I've never done anything to really work on my marathon time. I've run all of my marathons to have fun...not for speed or competition. And I'm not saying that I'm looking to kill myself to hit a new PR. But if distracting myself with repeats on the treadmill to not get bored will get me a new PR...well...here's to a new PR baby!
