After 8 very long days I laced up my Brooks and went for a run. I played it safe and ran on the treadmill. I have a love-hate relationship with this piece of equipment. I love that I can easily complete speed work and tempo runs without constantly checking my Garmin. I hate that every stride on the TM is a cautious one for me. I have sound reason on this one, hear me out.
My best friend Brittani watched in horror but was in too much shock to actually help me out (thanks, Britt – I’ll never forget it!) 😉 I had rug burns on my shoulder and what’s worse is that I had to do the walk of shame down the line of treadmills and ellipticals as everyone watched (or so it felt). I will never look at a treadmill the same again….
