Treadmills, aka Devil Belts, are not my favorite. It took some pushing to do my first straight mile on a treadmill. My workout paused and I actually had to do about 1.08 miles to equal 1. On the plus side, my 5S using the Nike app and nothing else was dead on with the 'mill.
In fact, a shoutout to my phone. It often is doing GPS, sending GPS via Glympse, streaming music, counting steps via FitBit, all at the same time. Plus sometimes it does freaky shit like this.

Apparently keeping up with this blog is even more difficult than working out, because I still occasionally get off my ass. I decided to do a version of the Runner's World run challenge. Basically I need to jog a mile every day from Monday until July 4th. Over the last few weeks I've been jogging a mile straight when possible. For me this is actually quite a feat, as I had jogged a mile without stopping only once in my adult life. I've been a jog/walker during the 5 years since we first dabbled in races.
We have a trip right in the middle of this challenge, which should prove to be, umm, challenging. I'm not participating in an official capacity, since 13 minute miles probably don't even count. But I plan to play along and make myself get out there for a mile straight each day.
Day 1, aka Memorial Day, is in the books. Each time I work out I'll take a picture while moving, hence the Moving Picture Challenge. Today I was walking right after finishing a hot, painful mile.
More painful miles to come!
