My Christmas Gift
My Christmas present this year was a surprise - my husband gave me a treadmill on which he is currently walking. So sweet!! I think it's like one of those gifts that gives back to the giver. I must say, it has been great to have this week during the miserably cold, snowy, icy weather. The treadmill never has been my favorite cardio machine, but now that I am a runner and can log miles when my husband isn't on it with my kids at home and when it's freezing - I find it a lifesaver. I'm curious as to how my husband's training will progress with it - if I will lose some strength from not running on the roads with the hills. I adjust the incline but it is still different. I also feel that I'm running much faster though it says I'm running slower... but maybe my stride is a bit longer outside? No matter, he is I am loving the ability to log miles each day.
