The easy way out!

  So it's cold and windy....so!? Back in the day I'd brave the elements regardless....now I find the allure of the treadmill....in the comfortable confines of my home I can run!
  Sure it's a different running....yet it still burns calories and trains the heart/lungs. I decided on an 8 miler with one mile warm up one cool down. The six in between were 3 x 6.6mph. 2 x 6.7 mph, 1 x 7.0 mph. All on 1 degree incline. I broke a good sweat and held on real well. I really need to take it to the roads....it's just not the same. However, the hills + treadmill ought to = strong running! We will see.....1:15:45-8 miles. Peace!!!
