This morning, @TheWelshWookie and I planned a 9 mile route. So, we had a breakfast smoothie, and got changed to head out for a run. Then, I made the mistake of looking out of the window, and seeing the icy, driving rain outside.
So, I made an alternative suggestion: why not check our running ‘outfits’ for Madrid by running our nine miler on the treadmill?
That’s what we did!
As I mentioned yesterday, @TheWookie has had a dodgy knee, so rather than running nine miles straight, we tag-teamed it by running three miles and swapping over. I’m pleased to say that the running gear performed well, as did @TheWookie’s knee 🙂 We were also able to watch a couple of films as we ran, so we’ve now caught up with the excellent American Hustle and the not-quite-so-good The Delivery Man. It certainly passed the time!
The plan for this evening is to chill out with a glass of vino and The Voice. What are your plans?

Nice job and it’s always good to have a Plan B, right? Way to make the best of a rainy situation!! 🙂
That’s my thinking! Thanks! 🙂
Glad that knee is holding up.
We’ll be having a relaxing night with some food and maybe a glass of “go faster” red wine before running tomorrow morning. Think I might have to get the winter gear back out again so I’m glad my longest run last week was in such lovely weather!
I think tomorrow’s forecast is better than today’s, but still supposed to be cold. Enjoy your ‘go faster’ juice! 😉
That sounds like a fun way to still run together.
It was great! Though nothing beats an outdoors run, I must admit. 😉
Thanks! It worked out well!
Glad you guys got your run in despite awful weather. We have a copy of American Hustle ready to watch for tonight. I’m expecting great things!
Hope you enjoyed it!
Do you know what tag-teaming is slang for here? Haha. Check out urban dictionary.
Oooh…., off to check that one out; slightly worried…..
Only @piratebobcat would take it there. haha
There are probably many works that we say @tartanjogger that you could get us for. 🙂
Happy you guys were able to run. What are the knee issues? Guess I missed a blog and will have to go check it out.
@theWookie has had knee issues for years, from playing loads of rugby and karate in his youth 😉 Fortunately, they’re much better this week! Phew!
Phew! Good to hear!
Oh, I learned some funny phrases when I visited Scotland before. I’d share, but I don’t want to make Tartan lady blush!
lol! I can imagine! 😮
Great improvisation! And you even managed to make a game out of having to get your miles in on the treadmill! Not an easy feat! Glad you had fun!
Thanks, it was a good run! 😉
