I love my treadmill. We have a great routine that involves a lot of multi-tasking and running. I could put on a load of washing, or start dinner preparations and jump on the treadmill to review a movie until it was time to move the washing around or toss another vegetable in the soup. It meant I could always find time to exercise but the rest of my world didn't stop.
Then it had a blow out.
While I am waiting to fix it, I had to go out of my way to exercise. I had to schedule around children. For a creature of habit, this was hell.
But I took Lola, my permanent furry fixture...
..for a run along the waterfront. The temperature was perfect, there was a slight breeze and the air was salty (and a little seaweedy)
...I rediscovered the beauty of nature.
I'd still prefer the convenience of my tready but the outdoors is pretty amazing too.
