15 Miles on Treadmill

Well after not running much last week, eating a ton yesterday during the Super Bowl, and then eating FOUR big cookies (I'm ashamed of myself) today at work, I decided I better get my butt in the gym and get a good run in.

I ran 15 miles at about a 9:00/9:05 minute pace. Every other .25 miles or so I'd add in some sprint/hill workouts. During the very first mile, my ankle and shin killlled me and I had no idea why. I wonder if the soreness was from my snow run the other day. I made myself run slower for the first 3 miles and then luckily the pain went away. One month ago I never would have thought I could last for 15 miles on the crappy treadmill. Luckily it wasn't that hard to do so today.

I hope to go home and do 15 minutes of abs (I've been slacking on those!) and then call it a day.

See a piece of cake.

Yeah...but I almost feel like it wasn't that good of a workout since it wasn't on trails or much incline. I'll have to work on that!

Wow nice job! I don't think I could last that long on a treadmill.
