I hated it. Flat out did not like running on the treadmill. What a boring experience after being able to run outside multiple times. It is worse than the track. The main reason I am very anti-treadmill with distance running is... that I couldn't do my distance. I made it 5 miles before I gave up.
When running my pace changes too much. While running on the treadmill it got to a point where I feel like I am wanting to walk more and more. I know it is probably a mental thing... okay I KNOW it is a mental thing. I just gave up. SO. I will probably not run distance this week. I ran 5 miles on Monday (gorgeous out) and 5 miles tonight. I am doing my first 5k of the season on Saturday too. I suppose that is pretty good, but the race is in 3 weeks. I have 3 weeks to get my butt in gear to be able to make it through a half marathon.
On a brighter side: I have lost a total of 130 lbs. That is an adult. WOW. I have dropped into a size 12 a while ago and am gearing up for that size 10. I have gotten my bridesmaid dress in from one of the weddings for this summer... I ordered a size smaller at the shop and probably should have gone 2. It is already too big! Love it!
The weight loss is still slow and steady. I will take it. I didn't become over weight in a day, so it will take time for me to get healthy.
Keeping the head up and moving on.
