Running nowhere.

I hit the treadmill yesterday and today. Just running along in my basement. The scenery is marvelous.

Or not.

It doesn't matter. It just feels good to run. My schedule and situation (and, honestly, wimpiness about the cold) is such that I need the treadmill in order to run during these winter days. Although, huh, today was in the 50s and I still didn't run outside. I did take my toddler for a nice long walk, though!

So, yeah, I'm glad I have the treadmill. I'm feeling pretty good, especially since my toe hasn't hurt much during my last two runs. My self-prescribed regime seems to be working well . . . so far. (If I was a superstitious person, I'd be knocking on wood right now.) I do still have twinges of pain but it is not nearly as bad as last week. I give a lot of credit to Yoga Toes. If you've never stretched your toes, I highly recommend doing so -- it's a real treat.

Happy Monday, everyone!

a run is a run... whether on the Tm or outside... at least that's what i keep trying to tell myself. :) glad the toe is feeling better.

Glad things are going well with the toes!

Can't say I have ever tried to stretching, but I'm glad to hear it seems to be working.

I definitely appreciate the treadmill this time of year. I can only handle two indoor runs in a week, but it's nice to get a little break from Old Man Winter.

Just the term Yoga Toes sounds kinda fun! Hey, treadmill runs beat no runs which is what I'm doing so you get no complaints from me!

I might have to get down with those yoga toes, given my current situation

I'm lucky my treadmill is next to a window, so i can pretend the scenary is changing.

Nicely done. That is exactly why they invented the treadmill.

Yoga toes? Look weird - but I'm sure it's great.
I am knocking on wood for you too! No more issues!

I also love the treadmill now - the winter wind just doesn't agree with me even if it is above 40 degrees! i don't know what I am going to do when I go home for Christmas! I guess Ill be hitting the roads all bundled up!

Get you butt outdoors!! You are missing the best time of year. It could be and sometimes is in the 20's here and I hit the road. Right now it is even a bonus with the Christmas decor up!!

glad you got in a treadmill run, and your toe is feeling better. I am still not able to run in the freezing cold, so I can't even imagine you running outside! :) Such dedication!

Mark said...

I will check it out! Thank you....hope you had a fantastic day!

I can't wait to get a treadmill for my basement in January when things get rough around here.

But I wonder if I'll have the motivation to run on it like you do!

I always see those yoga toes in US Weekly, but I never knew if they worked or not.
