As you know one of my 2013 running resolutions is to run Laura's 5 by the 5th Virtual Race Series each month until June. I am loving this virtual race series and I'm sad there's only one more month to go!
I ran this run last Thursday. Usually this is the day I run with friends but the weather was horrible! We were under a flash flood warning...I even had a river of rain water running through my backyard due to all the rain we had already encountered! So we decided it probably wasn't a great idea to run outside. So the treadmill was my only option.
Now I am not a big fan of the treadmill. But I would rather run on the treadmill than not run at all. So I set out to conquer 3.1 miles inside...on the treadmill.
The miles went by pretty fast surprisingly. I've discovered though that I run way slower on a treadmill than I do outside. I'm not sure why this is. The treadmill is easier...so I should be running faster, right??? I told you this revelation on Facebook and a lot of you said it was the same way for you. I'm glad I'm not alone in this lol!
Overall this was a very enjoyable run...even though it WAS on the treadmill! I passed the time by watching everyone else in the gym...I love to people watch! :-)
QOTD: Do you prefer outside running or treadmill running? Do you run slower or faster on the treadmill?
