I have been battling a head cold the past few days. Sinus, watery eyes, itchy throat. Took it slow and just went for miles to get miles the past 2 days. Feeling better today (at least I didn’t feel like putting my head on the treadmill console and sleeping). So I went for a regular workout. I just ran with a tissue for sinus drain (actually a paper towel (and my shirt)) and went for it!
I wanted to do a Boredom Blaster Treadmill Run I Found online. Looked great! But with my itchy ears and sinus towel, I went for the workout I could complete.
Hills aren’t my favorite. You’ve heard me be whiny about hills. My cross country coaches have heard me be whiny about them. And guess what – that’s why I am so bad at them! So putting more incline in my 5 mile runs will be very beneficial.
So here is what I got in today – and it was great for how I was feeling. I will probably keep the incline the same in the future, just increase my speed. But I definitely wasn’t bored and the workout felt great.
Do you have workouts you do on your treadmill to help with the monotony? Let me know!
