9 miles, treadmill style.
This morning I had every intention of going out on the road for a long run...until I got in the car to take the kids to school and realized how freaking cold it was out there! I have GOT to start getting tough again. Winter weather is basically here, like it or not. But, for today I gave myself a break and decided to sweat instead of shiver my calories off. After doing a 20 minute Pilates warm up, I got on the treadmill and ran for 100 minutes straight, a little over 9 miles. I kept busy and distracted by watching some good shows on Hulu.com and Netflix. After I finished on the treadmill, my hamstrings were feeling twitchy, so I did an additional 20 minutes on the elliptical, which really seems to help loosen them up.
