Mid-sprint this morning, my hand caught the string attached to the emergency stop button on the treadmill and I went from running at a 9.0 to standing still on the treadmill, my head full of frustrating thoughts as I aggressively pressed the buttons to try to get the treadmill to come back to life.
The emergency stop button completely resets the treadmill, so I had to wait for a bit before I could punch in my speed and run again. I was in the zone and digging deep in the middle of my workout when this happened and the emergency stop button served as my own personal energy zapper.
Thank goodness for awesome music, because once the treadmill started going again, a gloooorious song came on my iPod. The Jock Jams Mega Mix! If that song doesn’t pump you up, I don’t know what will. (It was even the song we chose to have our bridal party introduced to kick off the reception at our wedding!)
Though my workout was briefly interrupted, it was still a pretty darn good one.
I completed a 35-minute treadmill workout that looked like this:
Since Ryan was still busy finishing up his legs workout when I was done on the treadmill, I ended my workout with a 10-minute cool down on the elliptical.
I was craving sweet and salty thing morning, so an egg sandwich with cheese and jelly sounded perfect.
Served with a hot mug of Newman’s Own vanilla caramel coffee on the side!
Ryan gave me that mug for Christmas one year and I love the adorable sleeve and big, red button.
I commented on how cute it was during a random trip to Starbucks with him and was pumped to see it in my Christmas stocking! Sipping coffee from that mug makes me feel nice and cozy… in the 80-degree Florida chill.
Have a GREAT Tuesday everyone!
