I typically do three days of cardio (plus core) and two days of total-body strength training every week. Today happened to be one of those cardio days, and since I'm coming off a weekend, I was less than thrilled with the prospect of having to run on the treadmill (otherwise known as the "dreadmill"). It's just so boring. And I so felt like being lazy with my girl.
Then the following infographic showed up in my Google Reader as I chomped down some cereal. It had me at "get on your running shoes. Stretch and warm up. Now, on your mark, get set, go!"

In case you're wondering, I busted out four miles today. Above average for a Monday, if you go by the stats above, and the longest I've clocked since my pre-baby days. I did, however, divide it up into two segments, taking a short break at the halfway point to work my core (and use the restroom). Wednesday is yet another cardio day, and I'm hoping to link the two this time. If I can last that long on the treadmill. Sometimes I have to hop off it to run my last mile on the track.
I better download some new music, maybe that'll help.
Question: How do you fight boredom on the treadmill? Do you have a go-to running song?
