I’m actually starting to like the gym; I’m going about five days a week before work. I’m doing a lot of cross-training, but not a lot of running. I really hate the treadmill… and the stationary bike… and the elliptical. I am not getting either the cardio or leg workout that I get outside and feel like I’m moving backwards in my training. Odd that going to the gym religiously can actually inhibit training, but that is what’s happening.
I need to get back outside. I run better and I enjoy it more. I don’t need to make sure my Bluetooth headset is charged so as to distract me from the monotony. I may still go to the gym afterwards for cross-training, but I find that the best training for running is running. Since I run best outside, I need to get back to that.
