Sooo, sooo tired...
|6 mi.||1:08:58||treadmill: 3 miles at incline||11 something mins./mi.|
I think my legs are shot.
I wanted to run 7 mi. on the treadmill last night. I only ran 6. I think my legs are still tired from Saturday.
Thankfully, I'm taking today off. No running, not even to the refrigerator.
The most interesting thing that happened yesterday at the gym: a middle-aged woman got onto the treadmill next to me, and noticed that I was making the floor, her treadmill, and everything around me shake with the pounding of my steps.
As her water bottle bobbled precariously on the control panel of her machine while she walked at a 2.5 mph pace, she kept shooting me looks and giving me a sort-of-whatthe.eff.- gesture with her hands.
When I quit running at 6 mi. and turned off my iPod, she had the nerve to comment that she'd never experienced such shaking when she was on a treadmill before, with the subtext that she found the whole sordid episode to be greatly disconcerting to her.
Why didn't she just come out and say that people who weigh more than 200 pounds shouldn't be allowed to run at her gym? The nerve.
