Running on a Treadmill monotony VS Running on an Outside Track monotony
Both are, to be blunt, boring as hell.
But, for a short mid-week before work run (I can't imagine running on either for more than 5 miles, and even 5 sounds horrible), I'm thinking a track might be the way to go??
1) it keeps me "conditioned" to running outside
2) it keeps me from going all "soft" about running in the cold
3) it smells better than the gym (snicker)
There are a couple of high school tracks near my house.
One or two may or may not require me to jump the fence....but let's not worry about those little details just yet.
(I have an image of me hanging from the top of a chain link fence....dangling by my running tights. It's not pretty.)
Anyway......what say you??
