Wednesday’s workout: Hill Repeats on Cat HIll
Seeing as how we were in the single digits on Tuesday, I decided to wait until Wednesday evening to hit Cat Hill for my series of hill repeats.
So before I left work on Wednesday, I checked AccuWeather.com to see what the forecast foretold. Lo and behold, it said it “felt like” 16˚F.
Ah, Treadmill, we meet again.
Luckily, I brought my gym bag to the office should the temperatures not reach above the teens. Also luckily, I brought my iPod shuffle to block out all crap music overheard throughout the cardio area.
I set the treadmill at a reasonable level on the “Hill” workout, with a timer set for 35 minutes (Please note, there is a sticker on every piece of cardio equipment begging patrons not to use them past 30 minutes. It appears I’m a rule breaker, but only a little bit.)
And so I started.
I stared blankly into the black television screen while jamming my drum and bass.
Ten minutes took an eternity.
But shortly after that 10 minute mark, I got more in the zone, and the next 15 minutes flew by.
And even though the last 10 minutes took another eternity, I was so excited with myself for performing hill repeats on a treadmill (well, only half the workout, I switched to manual after 18 minutes), that I didn’t care (I really did, but just go with it).
Take that, Treadmill, you son of a bitch!
(Also, Treadmill, please don’t hurt me should we meet again.)
