Week 8-Training for #7


I am done with Winter  in MN…as I sit here and type on this blog it is SNOWING!!  We were down to seeing brown grass, but now we have 7 plus inches of fresh white snow, UGH!! Actually this week we have been in a tornado watch, wind advisory and snow storm warning.  I love MN but this is ENOUGH!!


So with the addition of the 7 inches of snow which started at about 10:00 am, I knew the options for my long run were either a treadmill or the hallways of the high school I work at.  Since I was inside this week already, I opted for the treadmill.  To be honest I have not run on a treadmill in a couple of years.  Although I was not excited about it, I also was not dreading it.
