"30 min" is the first official workout on my half-marathon training plan. It's intended to be a 30 of the min run-walk-run fashion. I originally thought that I would substitute in a 30 minute walk, but after talking with my orthopedic last Thursday, I decided to opt for 30 min with the bike on the trainer. It's a better workout and it's what she recommended it for my knee. And I should add, there is no way I can get my cycle shoes on quite yet (toe still swollen), otherwise I probably would have taken the bike outside.
So that's what I did. 30 long, miserable, sweaty, boring, hot minutes.
Gosh, I have no idea how any of you can stand running on a treadmill or riding on a stationary bike. So boring! I put my ipod on, but even the music didn't help the minutes tick away any faster.
It's going to be a long 4-6 weeks waiting for my knee become run-ready. Sigh.
And, because I don't take myself too seriously, I did a silly selfy a la "Rosie We Can Do It" once I was done with my ride. Okay, maybe it's not that similar, but if you know what I'm talking about, you'll at least see what I was attempting. Hahahah.
If you are a treadmill or bike-trainer or similar such person, please share your best ideas on how to make it more interesting. THANKS!
