Me - "Why are you upset?"
Her - "You hurt my feelings daddy..."
Me - "Huh? How did I hurt your feelings? You hurt my head."
Her - "waaaaaaaaaa"
3 years old and already playing the manipulation game, reverse psychology and guilt trips... the teenage years look to be spectacular! =)
It was nice getting outside for a run today! I'm aiming to get a lunch swim as trying to jam a run and long swim in the AM before work just isn't getting it done. I need more time and getting up early enough to make that happen before work isn't happening.
So, I need to manage the workload as not to overflow into lunch so I can break away and get the swim in. Time will tell...
But, I also noticed 2 issues with running outside vs on the treadmill at the gym.
- It was nice to get a breakfast in and have time to digest on the way to the gym so I had something in my stomach before pushing the envelope. The breakfast would be small, but something. But, running at home I get up, get dressed, and drink some perpetuem or gatorade and hit the road. I can't do solids and run 10 minutes later so by the end of the run, I'm STARVING! Better than yarfing, though.
- Treadmills give you more control over the run if you are doing intervals and hills, which are my Tuesday run workouts. I can manage intervals but the roads and sidewalks are not flat so there are some elevation changes to take into account and I have some hills, but there's only so much elevation gain you can change and managing by time is more of a challenge when you run out of hill.
- BONUS ISSUE - you usually don't get that nice fresh skunk smell running on the treadmill that you could get the pleasure of from running outside...
