It's been cold and rainy here the past two days. That means cardio has taken place on the treadmill at my apartment's little gym. I personally find running on the treadmill to be extremely boring so this is what I try to do to avoid looking at the mile or time display every five seconds.
Unfortunately the treadmill I ran on the past couple days did not have the option of covering the display so I only ran 3 miles each day due to extreme boredom. I did have a breakthrough thought while running yesterday- three miles is a piece of cake! After 3 (just under 9 min. mile pace) I was barely breaking a sweat and physically didn't feel tired at all. A year ago a 3 mile workout was a huge accomplishment and now it's just a typical workout on an easy day.
I was slacking in the arms/abs department but I got in a really solid 20 minutes of arms in yesterday. I was the only one in the gym so I took the time to figure out some of the weight machines and then did a circuit both with the machines and the free weights. I'm a little bit sore this morning so I know it was a productive session.
