Treading the mill

After the snow, the ice, and with it the frustrating "How am I going to get my run in?" question. Tuesday I was supposed to meet up with the Hovi and a couple of other loyal miners for a run but I couldn't even get off my front yard without almost breaking my neck so headed back into the safety of my warm den.

The office was closed so I was working from home again. As I cussed and hissed and tried to pretend I was doing some work and wasn't pissed off that I wasn't going to be able to get my run in, Lisa casually slipped into the conversation that our next door neighbours had a treadmill! Eureka! So I've had a couple of runs on their treadmill this week and kept myself sane. I even managed to spice it up a little and do a workout of sorts on the belt today.

While the roads have cleared up, the sidewalks are still treacherous and refreeze every night and Mcalpine is no doubt a mess so I may be confined to the mill at work the next couple of days. Hopefully by the time Saturday's long run comes around everything will have thawed as I certainly won't be doing 90 minutes on the hamster wheel!
