Janathon Day 9

“A treadmill is an exercise machine for running or walking while staying in one place,” Wikipedia says. And that is exactly what I hate about it. You sweat and hurt and make weird noises while remaining on one spot. Yes, I know how important treadmill is, especially for me, a slow runner who cannot keep her pace. But still – until yesterday I never made it further than to 30 minutes of running in the gym.

So when 2 hours ago V. stood on the machine next to me with the expression of the power woman on her face telling me she would run at least 5 km, I had two choices: go spinning/elliptical training, or pick up the glove. 45 minutes and 6.2 km later I was done with today’s Janathon session.
