Speaking of the gym... you all know my hate of treadmill running! BLAH! BORING! But it is a necessary evil for me in the winter time since without it I wouldn't do anything! My first run this week I decided that the treadmill is just as exciting as I remember... NOT... but I was pleasantly surprised by something. After doing most of my runs on the concrete sidewalk for the past 5 months and my knees, ankles, and shins screaming in pain... I noticed after I was finished with this run that my legs felt great! Not even a little bit of aches and pains like usual. I think this is because the treadmill has some give to it and for that I'm thankful! Also, maybe this break I've taken was beneficial to my body. I gave it some time to heal.
Here's to getting back into the running habit!
