- I ran on a treadmill (ahhhhhh!!!!)
But... - the YES!!!!
- 4.5 miles with no knee pain, no walking, and no left or right turns
Marcy, please forgive me for ever threatening you that I won't read your blog anymore when you do evil treadmill workouts. I never thought I'd ever find myself back on one, but the new Miss Treadmill Goddess of the Universe inspired me with this safe alternative for my knee recovery. The last time I ran on a treadmill was way back in the day when conservative Idaho senators were actually real life conservative Idaho senators. (end of bad joke portion of today's post.)
I'm excited. I will try to do a "conservative" long(er) run this weekend, with many walk breaks, to hopefully help make my decision about whether or not I even attempt Cle Elum next weekend.
Feeling good, though. Feeling good.
Today - 4.5 miles
that's awesome that your knees are collaborating :) so i wasn't aware of the whole treadmill bash... is it that different from running?ReplyDelete
very nice- the treadmill can be a friend- in a weird kind of way. just don't be tapping your foot or swiping your hand on it...ReplyDelete
Great news. You should do the Cle Elum 50K for sure. At least start it and be a part of it. It will be an awesome experience...ReplyDelete
Glad the treadmill experiment paid off and your knee is feeling improved.ReplyDelete
Had a cackle at your senator jab :)
Scott that is awesome news!!! ;D Here's to many more runs that are pain free! I'm excited for you!!
BTW I'm abandoning your blog. I can't believe you ran on a treadmill :P
Ugh, treadmills, but if it worked it worked. Just keep babying that knee for now so that you can make it the Cle Elum.ReplyDelete
I ran on the treadmill like a half dozen times over the last year. It's just a tool, no more, no less. Great news about the knee!!ReplyDelete
Nice on the senator joke. Glad to hear that the 4.5 were pain free...even if they were on the damn treadmill :PReplyDelete
What... I am a GODDESS? I hardly know what to say!!! LOL!!!ReplyDelete
If it makes you feel better I dreaded my 8 miles on it yesterday. Every mile was long and it never seemed like i would finish. Thank goodness for Judge Judy. She is on for an entire hour and it helped. It was like watching Redneckville as she slammed people for being so stupid. Loved it!
So glad to hear that it was a "pain free" run. Just be a good boy and don't jump out there and do anything stupid.
I hate the treadmill, it is my last last last chance! About Garmin, I have the 205 because I don't use the heart monitor. It works very well.ReplyDelete
WOOHOO!!!!!!! Glad to hear you are getting better!ReplyDelete
Ahhh treadmill runs are the devil. But glad to hear there's no knee pain!ReplyDelete
eh hum. You mean the THRILLMILL!?!? Come on! You gotta love it... when you GOTTA use it! hehehe:)ReplyDelete
Glad to hear that you were pain free. Maybe that is waht you need for now, just some easy mill running.ReplyDelete
