Speaking of this week's training, if you follow us (mostly me) on Twitter you may have suffered through a fair amount of me kvetching all last week about the broken treadmills in my apartment's gym. Yes. BOTH broke at the same time. I had to do THREE of my runs outdoors. I know I already touched on the subject once, but I think this week is going to have to include another treadmill vs. outdoors post, with multi-pronged arguments and charts. Okay, not charts. Probably.
Anyway, the treadmills were finally both fixed by Thursday, just in time to save me from the outdoor-run-ruining DELUGE of rain that assaulted the Baltimore-Washington area for many, many days. Thank God for small miracles, at least!
|Ah... sweet treadmill.|

|Same to you, bucko.|
