good Gym treadmill 9.15 mi 01:25 09:17 pace

My son was up at 5:15, before I got out for my run. So it was delayed until this evening, by which time it was too warm (for me) to run outside. TV at the gym started well enough with a simpsons and office I've never seen, but devolved from there to a show where George Lopez sets people up using methods shallow even by TV dating show standards. I've been known to watch some absolute crap while running at the gym *cough... Kardashians* but this was a bit much. But I made it. Building mental strength.

    Good choice picking the treadmill over the heat, in spite of the lackluster TV programming you had to endure. Nice pace for the distance too, great workout!

    The temps I've seen listed for Chicago lately have been crazy. Good job finding a way to get it done, Maryjo! Building mental strength indeed-- if you can endure the worst crap that TV can dish out, the mental toughness of a marathon will be nothing!

    I don't know what is harder, an hour and a half on the TM, or watching bad TV! You are tough, MJ!

    Yes, just think that during a marathon you'll never have to watch George Lopez. So it has to be easier than this workout. Nice job sticking with it and flexing your plans, once again.

    Nice mileage on the TM, it's tough running longer distances on the TM, however, better choice than outside these days.
