Man, treadmills are boring.
So yesterday, I found myself with half a mile to go for my walking goal. Not a big deal, right? I mean, the weather had been beautiful all day, so I figured I’d just grab the dog and any family members who wanted to go with me and I’d knock out that last short distance. Except that, as I was making those plans, a storm started to roll in. And while I don’t mind the rain, I don’t want to be out and strolling about in heavy rain and lightning (and, as it turned out, hail). So, I went and hit the treadmill.
I got my mileage in, too. 5.36 miles in total for the day. But wow, that last half mile was tedious. I like actually moving, and seeing things change, and that just doesn’t happen on a treadmill. Even with my headphones and my podcasts, it was slow and boring.
Needless to say, I’m still going to keep the treadmill in mind as an option. It’s jut going to have to be an option of last resort.
