What is your definition of hell? Mine is the 10 miles that I just spent on my treadmill. There is a major snowstorm going on here right now and the city workers are on strike so even if I wanted to go outside the roads haven't been plowed in two days, which would mean I'd have to go running with snow shoes on.
It took everything in me to stay on that treadmill. After every mile I had to talk myself into another one. I'm starting to think that a spring marathon was a really bad idea since training in the winter is no fun at all. I'm sick of the treadmill and I find running on it to be 80% mental ability and 20% physical ability. I'm so looking forward to spring!
