Yesterday was the start of what I'm hoping will become part of my weekday routine running: treadmill miles at the campus gym.
My schedule allows me about an hour and a half when I first get to campus to workout and shower before I've scheduled office hours, so yesterday was my first go at this routine. I've never used the faculty locker room before, but I got the code, and I packed all my shower stuff.
It went well yesterday, but I have come down with a case of the sniffles -- just a minor head cold that is more annoying than anything -- and combine that with the fact that I was running a wee bit later than I'd have liked and I only got 4 miles done. Which was fine. I showered, got ready, and had plenty of time to arrive at my office. The one downside?
There seems to be no hot water in the faculty locker room. It was a bit like showering in a Russian prison.
Today, then, I arrived at my "goal" time, plus I am feeling a bit better today, so I managed to do a full 6 miles on the treadmill (in 58:50, I might add, which for me, is SUPA fast), then I headed over to the showers, and again, brrrr!
My one error today? I forgot to pack a towel! DOH!
