Friday morning -- wake up at 4:45 -- hear the rain -- hard rain. It's days like this when I'm glad we have a YMCA membership. So, I'm off to the Y to put in some miles on the dreadmill. I managed 4.5 miles of running (plus .2 miles of warmup walking and 8+/- minutes of cool-down.
I still don't know why the treadmill is so much harder than running outside. But, I found out about a kindred spirit. The current Runner's World cover story is Lance Armstrong's debut NY Marathon. In the interview he says more than 30 minutes on the treadmill is really hard. I ran 34:30 and it was hard!
Oh, well. I got my miles in.
