I had high hopes of doing an outdoor run. Sadly, the weather was not cooperating. By the time I got off work is was overcast, cold, light rain, some thunder/lightning. So. Off to the gym I went for yet another run on the treadmill. I was thinking during that run (again), how much I just loathe the treadmill. My top dislikes:
1. It's hot. Seriously hot. All the time. There are maybe two fans over the treadmill bay, and they never have them on very high. There are no windows or doors to give fresh air.
2. They face mirrors. Seriously? As if running in place is not boring enough... now you can watch yourself run in place. Blah.
3. The timer. It's like a train wreck. I *know* I've only been running for 42 seconds. I know looking at the timer is going to make me wonder if time has stopped, yet I cannot help myself.
So. Yeah. I cannot stand the treadmill. Necessary evil, and all that. But... for the second time this week, it honestly could have been worse.
