Aaaah… running. We have such a strange relationship. On again… off again.
Lately, it’s been mostly off. Since the half marathon, I’ve run only a handful of times. My two handfuls. I keep thinking about how AWESOME it felt running the race, and how I proud I was finishing it.
My desire to run, or do much intense cardio in general for that matter, is gone. It’s vacationing somewhere, and if its on a beach, who knows when it will come back.
But like all things fitness, we don’t always want to do them. Sometimes, we just make ourselves do them.
Stepping outside doesn’t always work for me. I get distracted with the pup, or I slow down because I don’t have ground moving beneath me to physically keep me going. Oh… but the dreadmill. It can bore holes straight through my brain.
It’s important to have some go-to workouts that you KNOW will get you in the mood to workout. That is, once you get them started. These are my favorite treadmill workouts to get me through a good cardio session.
