Getting used to the treadmill but enough is enough!

Ok, I have to say I'm getting used to the treadmill.  Another 6 miles today.  The best advantage is that the treadmill is slowing me down which is what I'll need to complete my Marathon.  Not that I like it but jeez, its cold out there at 3 degrees with a -8 windchill.  From the looks of the forecast, I'll be outside on my runs this week because it's going to get back into the high 20's and low 30's.  That's way better to run in even though I know you Cali folks would not like those temps either.

The virtual 5k is going well.  Here's who I have signed up so far.  If you're on there and I have something wrong let me know.  If you want to be added, let me know that too.  If you requested to be added and I forgot you, let me know as well.

The star next to the people in Michigan means they might come to Stoney Creek Park.  The race is really heavily weighted towards the ladies, so, come on guys, you need to sign up for it.  If this keeps up, I might have to get a few girly prizes and I know that there are some(Chris K) that are not going to like that since he feels the contests are geared towards ladies most of the time.  Many of the bloggers are ladies so I'm not sure we can do anything about that - except have more guys sign up for the 5k!  Personally I enjoy reading all the ladies blogs even if I'm not included in many of the contests.

Stay warm everyone.

Have a great day and......Keep Running!

  4. Hey, I'm actually living in Missouri right now, but I am from Colorado... but I think the correct state should be MO. Although I would much rather represent CO than MO...

  5. If you need someone from MS, you can add me, but here's the thing, I will be running the Snickers Marathon that day, so my 5k will be at marathon pace. I'm a follower already.

  6. I hit the treadmill this morning too. It was just easier than bundling up and heading outside. Plus I got to do the stair climber too.

  7. Great job on the mill. It is hard to run in the cold, but for me, it is harder to get on the treadmill. I mean, as a mental workout, the treadmill beats the cold for me!! :) Man, you are sending that cold weather my way, I know it!! It is currently -1 plus whatever the windchill is..sigh.

  12. Chris - You've been added! I'll try to keep the girly prizes to a minimum

    Happy Feat - you can run the 5k that day as part of your race.

    Shannon - I'll change it. Thanks. Sorry, needs to stay MO.

  13. I love the treadmill! I guess I just like it for some things..not the really long runs. What do you mean by it slows you down? Meaning that you can put it at the speed you should run and not worry about going too fast?

  14. I'll be hitting the treadmill tomorrow, and I'm looking forward to it! Well, I will for about 5 minutes, until I remember how much I hate it. And then I will sweat profusely.

  15. I don't think I would like the treadmill much if I HAD to use it, but I don't (gotta love California). Although there are days I wish I had treadmill, like being able to run at home while kids are napping. That would be freaking awesome. Bike trainer will have to do.

  16. Amanda - yes, the speed slows me down.

    Tortuga - you're very lucky. I dream of CA weather.
