This is Bennie. Bennie is behind a plastic fence. I am on the other side. On the treadmill.
“Why?” you ask. “Why does Bennie have to stay behind the plastic fence?”
I’ll tell you why: Because Bennie can’t keep his tongue off of the treadmill belt.
Today’s run was supposed to be yesterday, but yesterday was the bloggy meet-up dinner with Chelsea, Jill, Mel and Zoë. I had so much fun (recap coming later).
My Jeff Galloway plan simply calls for two 30-minute runs during the week. Usually, I do some sort of intervals or something. But today, it was all I could do to BREATHE.
One of the dogs (not sure which one, but I have an idea) kept…um…breaking wind. It was disgusting. We were all locked in the room together while T Junior napped. I couldn’t even open the window because my neighbor’s chimney smoke was blowing in. I had the fan on me, but it was aimed toward my legs.
Ugh. I was practically gagging. I even ran with my hand over my nose for nearly a quarter-mile.
Tomorrow, Mr. T and I will rearrange the bedroom so the ‘mill will be right next to the big windows. I think that will make things much cooler as I was dripping with sweat when I finished running today, even though I was only in capris and a sports bra. Recently, I’ve tried my running skirt and a sports bra and I’m not sure if I just didn’t put enough BodyGlide on or what, but I chafed pretty bad. I just get so darn sweaty!
I’ll also be pointed toward the TV after tomorrow, which will be awesome. Although, not sure what to watch. Suggestions?
poor Bennie, he's really into watching you run. We have an Airedale terrier, I'm always terrified he's going to get his beard caught in the belt!
But he's too cute to be stinky!
Bad Bennie! Bad Bennie! Good for you for getting your run in despite the, uh, atmosphere.
We have a corgi who spends the whole time trying to get on the Mill. She has to go in her crate during runs. As far as what to watch, i pick shows that i might want to watch during the weak, but don't because of time etc…good luck!
I am so jealous, I want a treadmill in my house so bad!! I think pointing it towards the tv is a great idea! At the gym I usually watch shows that you don't have to pay much attention to (think Americas Next Top Model).
I can just see you running on the treadmill with Bennie just dragging his tongue across the belt. HAHAHA! Oh doggie. He's so cute though!
The mental picture of Bennie is quite amusing….
