I Wanted To Run. And So, I Did

Today, I planned on running after my 2 week break.

I wanted to run.

And so, I did.

I only planned on doing a 5K on the TM.

30 minutes on the TM is usually my limit. That's where I am about to scream and throw the machine out the window. And the whole time I am playing with my speed. Up and down, nothing constant. But today, at a couple of points I kicked that baby up to 7.5. I went as low as 2.0 to twitter on my phone and drink water, but kept it mostly around 5.0. Super easy.

My view of the TM

If you are a twitter follower, sorry about the treadmill live tweeting. I couldn't help it!

I felt so freaking good. I had downloaded a few Bassnectar songs and fell in love with Ping Pong. I wound up listening to the song on repeat for 2 freakin hours!

I highly recommend the song on your workout or running itunes playlist. Really!

So anyways, 3 miles somehow became 10. I didn't take anything with me other then water, so I was a little scared to do 3 more miles for a TM half marathon without a gel or anything to help recover immediately after.

Post-run potty shot.
My shirt said Run, and so I did. I missed it for the last 2 weeks, but today sure felt good.

What was your run or workout this weekend? Do you ever add on miles because you feel so good? What songs on your playlist do you recommend I add?


  1. If I had a Woodway TM I would have run 10 miles too. They are the best!!!! My coach has one so every once in a while I get to run on it.

    1. The woodways are insanely nice. I'm asking for one for xmas!

  2. yeah welcome back with a great run :)

    1. Thank you! It felt good to run after 2 weeks off.

    2. What a run!! I've never attempted to run 10 miles on the treadmill before, but I bet if felt great after some time off. Way to go!!

    3. that bassnectar song is magic on repeat. it totally made 10 miles seem like 1 on the tm. otherwise i would have just been done at 3.

  3. 10 Miles!! Way to come back from a break girl! :)

Quarantines and Earthquakes

Hi. How are you and your loved ones doing? Everyone safe and healthy? I hope everyone is illness free and has plenty of TP. :-)

The Stay at Home order isn't really affecting me too much. We work from home anyways, so its actually making us work more. I enjoy my house and my bed and I even signed up for Amazon Prime so I can watch more then what is on Netflix. We can't go out to eat in restaurants and we can't thrift store shop. I know, I know #FirstWorldProblems But I am thankful that I am in a relationship where I enjoy being around the person I am in a relationship with.

I have been ordering a Doordash or 2 a week. Doordash is a good thing and yet a bad thing. I can scroll and scroll and think about food, and even order it. It caters to this Taurus a little too well. I enjoy being at home, I like to eat, and I can make sure I tip the driver and make sure the restaurants can keep the lights on. I like to think of it as good karma.

Plus I can order DoorDash instead of suff…
