cardio | treadmill run | bike commute

"Longest ever!"
"Massive progress!"
"Pain free!"
"Comeback 2.0!"

All ways to describe my treadmill run today. Sometimes you have to bring the hype to keep things interesting. Or something like that.

In all seriousness my run today was my longest and fastest so far since I started this healing/rehab/recovery process so bonus points for that.

I got a really nice compliment on my ride home. I was cruising down the Burke-Gilman Trail toward Gas Works Park when this guy on a fancy 29er with street tires pulls up behind me and says, "I bet that bike doesn't do your legs justice; those like fit legs!" Thanks random guy, you made my afternoon.

I am getting sick of the play list I have on my iPod so listened to radio on my phone instead. That worked great on the elliptical trainer but on the treadmill my phone bounced out of the tiny pocket I have on my shorts. Oops. Luckily it survived the fall unscathed.

After my time on the elliptical trainer I stopped to take a picture but I guess since I had not told the machine how long I wanted to go for it assumed I should still be working out.

I've got your 'pedal faster' right here...

So I started moving again and somehow managed to take another without falling on my ass.

Thank god. Nothing more humiliating than getting tangled up in some cardio equipment in an enormous gym with tons of people because you were trying to use your phone. The only reason I wanted to take a picture is so I don't have to remember the time and distance... gotta log that shit!

On the treadmill I almost bailed as well! When my phone fell out of my pocket I almost bit it transitioning from the moving belt to the frame so I could pick it up and then when I put the phone on the console and started running again my arm got caught in the ear bud cord and I almost tripped. I suck.
