I Need a Do-Over

It was a battle.






















versus
























Its a rivalry that dates back to '09 when I first discovered that a) nothing beats running outside in the fresh, fresh air and b) running more than a couple of miles on this beast is dreadfully boring and may just be the death of me.

Nonetheless I wanted to get a workout in. I haven't ran at all this year (thanks goodness it's only the 5th and that seems worse then it is). I figured an easy 2 mile run would do me some good and get me back into the swing of things.

I was wrong.

I lightly jogged a little and walked a lot and after thirty minutes of barely breaking a sweat a called it a day and went to do some abs. For whatever reason, today was not my day.

We will meet again dreadmill. Watch your back, ya hear?

On a tired day where the alarm clock went off too early, a workout is a virtual impossibility and computer problems are endless I wish I could call in a "do-over" and I'd be free to just wake up and start the day again.Wouldn't that be nice?

But while I can't call in a fresh start to the day at whim I can make breakfast for dinner and pretend its morning.








































It's practically the same as a "do-over" if you ask me.


So tell me, if you got one "do-over" what would you do again?

  4. My do-over would be to suck it up and do two more hill repeats yesterday. Next time, for sure! Breakfast for dinner is a great idea.

  6. I have a ridiculously short attention span, so unless there's a really good movie on tv, I have a hard time staying on the treadmill for long. I tend to bounce around to different cardio machines and save my long runs for outside and with a good partner.

  8. Dreadmill.... I LOVE it! I feel the exact same way! I am training for a race, and it's been pretty cold where I live so I have had to do quite a few runs on the treadmill! BORING!

  9. The treadmill can be brutal. I have to cover the time and distance otherwise I fixate on it. You can conquer the treadmill. I believe in you.

  10. The dreadmill -- that's awesome! I hate it too. I used to be able to run 5-6 miles on it and now I die if I run more than 3. I can maybe push it to 4 if I do interval training. Running outside has ruined it for me.

    I'd like to have a do-over on NYE. I was sick, just laying on my couch. Boo!
