Treadmill Day 37 & What I #amreading

Treadmill Goals (for now):

  • Get on the treadmill (or equivalent exercise) daily
  • Pace is fine at 30 min/mile, although I may up it on occasion
  • Time range between 30 minutes and 1 hour per day
  • Distance 1-2 miles per day
  • Read the chosen book, which I won’t allow myself to read outside of my treadmill time, hopefully motivating me to reach or exceed the above goals

What I #amreading: Shiny! by Amy Lane

My favorite lines from today’s reading:

  • “Sh!” Will hushed in spite of himself. “Mom!” – But we moms live to embarrass our children!
  • “Kenny, baby, you have never looked sleepy. I met you in your boxer shorts and we were picking dildos up from the middle of the road, and you were still all class.” – That’s an achievement if ever I heard one!

  • As they were talking, Kenny took the opportunity to move subtly but possessively into Will’s personal space. Will understood: This is mine. I know he was yours, but I’ve claimed him. Will spoke fluent Kenny by now. It was a language of many subtle nuances. – Aww! ❤️

Alas, I missed my first day (in fact, 2 days) since starting this challenge. My excuse is that it was Christmas Eve and Christmas, and that I had a house full of company including some sleeping in the room that houses my treadmill. Anyway, as you can see, I made up for it today by staying on the darned thing for an hour and a half instead of the usual half-hour I’ve been doing.

I finished the book (it was great…I loved the final scene!) and spent the last half-hour catching up on a missed Big Bang Theory episode. I’m not sure what I’ll start reading tomorrow. Any suggestions?

    1. I know. And yet I used to walk a five-mile path almost daily where I used to live. My pace must’ve been faster since it took about 1-3/4 hours to complete. At least I can read while treadmilling, It was all daydreaming on the path (which is not a bad thing, either).
