Back on the Treadmill

This week, for the first time in weeks, I ran on the treadmill. Not just once, but TWICE!

Why? We had some SERIOUS thunderstorms. And as much as I don’t reallllllly mind running in the rain, thunder and lightning scare me. So when I woke up two days in a row to t-storms, I opted to keep up my running streak and hop on the treadmill. 

This benefited B, because both days the kids were awake when I was on the mill and B was able to sleep in. I got them breakfast ready and then started running. This meant my run was more of an interval run, since there were several times I had to get up, get LM water, break up a fight, etc. But it beat being poured on or hit by lightning! 

Here’s what the week looked like:

And here are some highlights from the week:

On the days it wasn’t rainy, we had some beautiful fall weather. It was 77 and sunny on Friday, so we made sure to take a long walk!

Look at this scenery. I love it.

One morning, after I got back from a run, FW and LM wanted to go out too. I took a turn running around the block with each of them — and it made me so happy!

Unfortunately, the weather is going to turn colder this week. Take a look at yesterday vs. the rest of this week’s outlook:

Some questions for you:

  • Do you run in thunder and lightning?
  • Has it turned cold near you?

I’m linking up with Deborah and Kim for the Weekly Run Down.

  1. I love running in the rain in the summer, but not in fall temperatures or in lightning. My rule of thumb is that if my dog won’t go out, I shouldn’t go out. It beats being hit by lightning and it sure beats not running at all!

  2. Those are some plummeting temperatures! No, I do not run in lightning. I do not wish to die that way, or by a tree falling on me. It’s happened, and I don’t want it to happen to me!

    Your kids are so cute! Love that they wanted to run with you.

  3. It turned crazy cold here last week! I think it’s gonna warm up (slightly) by Wednesday…for a few days LOL.I did some treadmill time as well last week…
