Boring Post about Past Two Days

My new treadmill came a couple of days ago. It's a Sole. I can't remember the model number, but it's a nice one! I put in a good trail run that morning and planned to assemble the treadmill in the evening after work. But my son surprised me by having it all assembled by the time I got home. So I started playing around with it, trying to figure out how to use the different programs, how to use the incline and speed, how to use of the heart monitor, how to change the display, etc. I didn't even change my clothes, I had on my yoga pants and the shoes I work out in. I didn't really feel like I was running so I was surprised when I looked at the "workout summary" and found I had done over three miles and averaged just over 8 minute pace. A new toy is always a lot of fun!

Yesterday was one of those work days where a run just wasn't going to happen. I had to start early and I didn't get home from my last visit until late. I had my running clothes with me in the car and even started to get changed for a quick run on two separate occasions during the day, only to be interrupted by that damned pager of mine. Oh well, I can't complain. I only have a tough work week every three weeks and the two weeks between are a walk in the park.


  1. Wow, what a great son! Can you send him to me. I could use some nice surprises like that.

    I have enjoyed reading your blog about the trails in your area of the country. Thanks for sharing. Keep kickin dirt on them! Have fun!

  2. Agreed on you having a great son! I bet that was a nice surprise indeed. Hope you won't have to use the treadmill too often though. :-)
