Skipping out on the weightlifting today enabled Sam and I to sleep in! Oh baby! Started running at 6:15 and had one hell of a good time. Sometimes, I just love running the treadmill. I get to watch the news (and scowl and get worked up), watch the (30+ year-old) hotties playing morning basketball, and lastly, just get to listen to myself run like a machine. I enjoy the self-attention sometimes. I work on my form, try different strides, change or modify my breathing, and work on a drink-timing schedule. When I'm outside, I'm so distracted by everything around me that I am rarely aware of me. It really was a great run even though I didn't go anywhere.
