Let’s talk about running on the treadmill.
It’s not a very fun thing to do. You feel like a hamster, you have to stare at one thing (usually the time ticking away on the clock) for the entire time, and a pace that might feel somewhat moderate while outdoors sometimes feels like an enormous struggle.
Up until last week I had the pleasure of going several months without having run on a treadmill. But when that polar vortex came along, it really threw my running routine off; To the point where I hadn’t run in almost four days because it was just too damn cold outside.
