I was I ran...say what?!?!?!?

Ok, there are weird things going on in my life. My TV stays on one of two stations, All Health Network or Universal Sports. And I am the only one in the room. I think this running thing is consuming me. First, I start dreaming about it, and now I just want to watch people "push through" obstacles.

Now hold on, a few weeks ago I said I didn't understand that notion. And I don't know if I still do. But I know that if I am going to run on a treadmill, I want to see someone else hurtin' as much as me. But here is where it gets weird. Today was my day off. I didn't "have" to run. And usually I justify that with not having to work out at all. It was 9:48 pm and the time for working out had past. So I sat down on the couch and starting flipping the channels.

That is when it hit me. Why not get on the treadmill and do 10 minutes? Well 10 minutes turned into 20 then turned into 30. I was on a roll. I was listening to my own music and not the Robert Ullrey Podcasts and going at my own pace. And to my dismay, I jogged for 6 minutes. Say what? I know, I couldn't believe it either. I think I am a distance runner. I am not fast the first few minutes but about fifteen minutes into it, I really get my juices going.

So I went to Itunes and made an Imix to share what I was listening to while I was running. If you do a search for "See Fluffy Run" you should be able to find it. It is in the Imix area. I don't know how long it takes to publish it but hopefully not too long.


  1. wow...good for you! I wish I had a treadmill at home to do the same. I jump rope on my days wouldn't think it but it is a great workout. I do alot of "running" while I jump and try to lift my knees as high as I can. I look forward to your entries everyday...I can relate with so much that you say on here...enjoy your's beautiful here in CT...ran yesterday at the gym after hubby and I will probably go for a hike later...Kris :)

  2. Ah, you are getting the bug for sure! Good for you!!! (isn't it fun and crazy all at the same time?)
