I originally planned to run another 6 miles today....to see if I could beat my time from Monday; however, when I started running, I immediately knew that wasn't going to happen. My legs are really tired from the past 2 days...and I have minor shin splits....so rather than give up, I decided to "change it up".
I ran an initial 3 miles on the treadmill.
Then headed over to the machine that I am pretty sure was made by Satan himself.
The stair climbers/masters at my old gym were different than this (although the same brand). The ones I was used to were, um, dare I say....easy. This thing was killer. Maybe it was because I was already tired...or because I hadn't done one in a few weeks. Or maybe it really is that much harder, but after 10 minutes (and over a mile climbed), I got off and headed back to the treadmill and ran another mile on an incline.
So, I guess I ended up with about 5 miles today....some I ran and some I climbed!
There are a couple of other "new to me" machines in this gym. I plan on taking them all on soon! And at some point, I guess I will probably develop a love-hate relationship with this stupid stair climber....cause I refuse to let a stupid piece of equipment beat me. Until then....
