Happy Tuesday. Today's topic is what do I love/hate about summer running. My summer running always ends up on the treadmill since I workout in the afternoons during the week, and this year I'm working on speed. I've upped my speed well past 6.0 mph when I'm in my running intervals, and will continue to tick that speed up each week.
One thing I'm looking to do is getting a couple cardio machines for the basement. My parents have a recumbent bike that I like, but I'd also like a treadmill. I have specifics, like it needs a fan, and speed buttons, not just arrows. I need to be able to change my speed quickly, like I can do outside. I know I just joined a gym, but this summer I haven't necessarily wanted to go to the gym straight after work. There have been days this month where it's nice to relax about 30-45 minutes before doing my run. I did that yesterday before doing my strength training and I felt rejuvenated during my workout. The issue is once I'm home, and then head to the gym, I won't really head to the gym. It's hard to leave again during rush hour.
Tuesdays on the Run with Patty, Erika, and Marcia.
