When the treadmill gets boring, try a walking video. I used to have these videos called, Walk Away the Pounds. They were pretty fun. I think you can order then online. You walk in place, but they aren't as boring as they sound. You can also run in place if you wanted. I'm thinking of buying them. My mom has them, but they are on VHS. I need the DVDs.

Guess which fool ran/walked after dinner last night when the heat index was 99 degrees?

Yep, that would be me.

The treadmill was a welcome alternative this morning. Even at 6 AM it was 84 degrees and 72% relative humidity.

I'm not trying to be faster than you. I'm trying to be better than me.

Yeah, but running outside while holding the TV set is so awkward...

Seriously, try to look at the bright side. It'll feel that much better when you can run outside again.

I hate the treadmill.

It was great for walking on in the rain, but running on it SUCKS I feel so much more pain in my legs and calves. UGH! SUCKS I probably am going to have to use it at least this week, as I am babysitting and have no way to do my c25k outdoors... UGH!
