tentative treadmill

Got home and couldn't bring myself to run in the blustery wind. But I still changed into my absurd spangly tights and a race shirt, and headed to the basement to run on the treadmill. Nothing fancy, just 5 minutes of warmup, then 5:1 intervals, speeding up as I went along. And then a 5-minute cooldown. Simple. And it was okay.

I also tested out the vibrating interval timer. Which really wasn't strong enough. I don't usually run with music anymore, anyway, so maybe I don't need to worry about my watch beeping. I have been told that the timer's alarm is Very Loud, so I'll try that next.

The thing that I won't want to jinx is this; it was my third straight workout. Now, I don't know the last time I strung together TWO workouts, let alone three. (Possibly the back-to-back half marathons in November?!?) And I know that three is a long way from being back on track. But it's a start. A good start.
