Running up hills like a mountain goat! Training on malfunctioning treadmills at gym… Greys Anatomy opera!
At the gym yesterday, standing on a treadmill, I was scratching the top of my head in frustration wondering if they had a competent maintenance crew?… It took four treadmills before finding one that was functioning correctly. The first one appeared to have a firmware issue, the second had a frozen display, the third, which I settled on for a warmup, wobbled so bad it felt like I was running on a boat and the fourth I was able to use!!! It was a beautiful day, hitting 10 degrees, so I believe the treadmill gods were attempting to frustrate me enough to get me outside, and it almost worked! I prefer to do hill repeats on a treadmill so I prevailed! To add to the frustration, the Canadian version of the Cartoon Network was showing on the TV directly in front of me… I didn’t think kids were allowed at the gym?
I managed to get in my 7X800 meter hill repeats @ 8:00 minute miles
As a side note… I had to watch Greys Anatomy last night, as a certain female member of the household had control of the TV, and I was ready to gag! The singing throughout the show was a little much. My prediction is both the female (don’t know the character’s name) and the baby survive.
