So, I went to the gym tonight and started my training for the Princess half marathon. It was tough, and I must say again, how much I HATE the treadmill. I can't decide if it is the lack of control I have, and not being able to speed up and slow down w/o pushing buttons, distractions, tv's, and all that jazz. I'd rather just be able to walk when I can walk, run when I want to run, jog when I want to jog, etc. I had planned on doing 45 minutes on the treadmill and only made it just under 30 minutes. I burned 532 calories in my workout. I will be doing cross training tomorrow, jogging again on Friday, and then a "long" run on Sunday (only 3 miles). I'm on my way to the princess, and the Battleship Half Marathon in November. I'm going to do this. There is NO stopping me!!
