Dreadmill in the Office Gym

By Khourianya @khourianya
I had a mid-morning meeting in our other building and the walk across the street had me dreading a run in that wind.  Since I had skipped yesterday's run due to stomach distress (it was a last minute call on that one - I was just too pained to run it) - I knew I had to make it up today.  Luckily the schedule called for an easy 5k and I can totally do that on the office dreadmill.
And I should probably use that gym membership since I pay my $16 for it every month.
So off to the office gym I went.
and onto the dreadmill.  Luckily I was there early enough to commandeer the fan.  And discover how hard it is to take running pics of yourself on a moving treadmill.  Almost as hard as trying to pull up your Rdio playlist.

So flattering. But at least no one else in the gym can say I posted their pic without their consent.
I was just going to run at an easy pace (5mi/hr) for half an hour then cool down, but at the 10 minute mark I was getting bored so I bumped the speed up to 5.5mi/hr.  and then up to 6mi/hr at the 20 min mark.  So kind of a progressive workout I guess...with a slow 5 min cooldown walk to finish.

Almost 5k.
I think every pore in my body was sweating.  At least I just look like I'm glowing in my usual post-run "stretching in the stairwell" shot

and AHHHHHHH!  My calf thanked me for this.  So much.

14k is on the schedule for tomorrow.   Luckily I can do it in a more self-propelled way instead of pulling a repeat on the hamster act.
