My start this morning was not what I had planned. My alarm went off at the usual time, 5:45 a.m. which gives me time to dress, lace up my shoes, get my morning Spark drink, and take off out the door. As I was getting dressed, I was hearing thunder drawing close. I looked out the window and muttered to myself, "Well, at least, worse case scenario, I bought that used treadmill." Even though I don't care for the treadmill, it's all I had. I wasn't about to skip my workout since I was already awake! Sleep is just too important to me!
So after the treadmill mileage and time kept blinking on and off, I realized my battery packet was loose. Thank you, Duct tape!!! I was almost at 3 miles on the treadmill or at least 30 minutes and then....what?....no power. Lights went out! I looked out the window and there was quite the storm going on. I guess with the noise of the treadmill and the TV on full blast I wasn't aware anything was going on.
So I ended up cutting my run shorter than I would have liked, but got it done.
Thank God I work in A/C. It was SOOOOO hot today. And very hot in my workout room. I really would have enjoyed the natural wind in my hair. Maybe tomorrow!
