I decided to run in the gym today because when I woke up it was raining. It wasn’t pouring out, but I thought the cold and the rain together would make for a really painful run. I was supposed to run four miles at a comfortable pace and then the last mile faster, but since the gym is only half a mile a way and I didn’t want to stop during my fast mile I changed it up a bit.
When I left my apartment I started my Nike and Charity Miles apps and then headed straight for the gym. I arrived there a little over half a mile later. When I entered the gym I went straight for my favorite treadmill. I had paused the Nike app while in the gym and used just the treadmill to track my run. The run on the treadmill went pretty well. I watched the news during it to make the treadmill more bearable, I ran four miles on the treadmill with the fourth mile being my fastest at about 8:18. After that I got a mat and began my stretching routine. I only had half a mile to go so I figured that it couldn’t hurt to stretch before that half mile. I also like to use their equipment at the gym. The run back home was kind of fast because I could’t wait to get back out of the cold. The entire 5.14 miles took 46:37 and I felt great afterwards! Now for more shopping in Boston!
