Running on a treadmill is hard. I am not used to having every run timed and knowing my exact pace. I have been trying to keep a 9 minute mile pace since that is what I am used to when I run outside. For the first few days, I used my IPOD and switched between play lists, but that stopped working for some reason.
They have a TV and I keep closed captions on, so I can read what is happening on the TV. But, lately I have been getting bored. All I can do is stare at myself in the mirror or glance down to see how far I have gone.
I miss running outside. I miss not knowing how fast I am going. I really miss being able to speed up and slow down when I want to. Only a few more days to go until I am back home.
