So, although the weather been really mild and dry here, i've been worrying about when it gets icy so I decided to try a treadmill at the local gym this morning. I did 45 minutes and the machine said I did 5k but my trusty garmin said 7.5 (and its usually right).
It was a different experience I must say. I didn't like watching myself run in the mirror, there was no wind in the face, or rain, or people to nod at and dogs to avoid. No sun on the face or the sound of the sea in the ears. I think i managed to go so far due to the lack of different surfaces and inclines in the roads i usually run. I was bored of my usual route but not as bored as on the treadmill.
Although it was nice to sit in the Jacuzzis afterwards i'll be saving the next experience for when its icy.
