We are already approaching rainy season and this is the season where its so tempting to spend your mornings with your bed. The cold breeze of air makes you want to spend just another hour on sleep.
But for a runner, skipping those runs isn't an option. But this poise a problem when its raining. Yes there are some who will, in any cost even in expense of getting a cold would still run outside amidst an uncooperative weather. But for me, I think its too risky and the consequences might by lethal.
So I have 2 options:
1.) Buy a treadmill.
2.) Use a treadmill in a Gym.
The first option is too expensive. Yes I can create all the excuses I can to get me this cool gadget, but I've already spent too much this month. Besides, to spend 40K for a motorized treadmill can be spent for a nice Road Bike (This is also one of my dream machine). So I'm gearing toward buying myself a Road Bike first before a treadmill.
So this leaves me for the second option, which is way cheaper and to my opinion more beneficial. Not only will I be able to run even if its raining, but I can add strengthening exercises to help improve my runs. Another advantage is its walking distance from my work, so I got myself a locker and shower area. This gives me the advantage to run even after work at the fort area.
I've enrolled at Fitness First the Fort. I had my first treadmill session last week, and it feels alot harder for me than running outdoor. This may seem counter intuitive since most sites would say running outside is harder than running indoor. But I guess I'm not used to NOT feeling the breeze of the air and the view of the trees so it felt harder for me. A minute in a treadmill feels like 5minutes for me. Maybe I just need to get used to it.
Nevertheless I now got an option whenver its raining outside.
