Even though I do most of my running outside now, I still don’t hate the treadmill. It allows for some prime zone-out time where I can focus on my iPod or things I should say to people, or just set aside the day.
When it goes well it’s great stress relief. Only today I thought I had zoned out too far because I was hallucinating that Stevie Nicks was on TV… but it actually was Stevie Nicks. WEIRD! In any case, I ought to hydrate better.
