Running on the treadmill is soooo BORING. Runners swear to me that running outdoors is a revelation, but even my most hardcore marathoner friends don’t look forward to time on the treadmill. Luckily it ended up that my treadmill faces the computer – a total happy accident of fung shui – which means that I can watch movies while I run to try to distract myself from the good I’m doing.
I’m always a sucker for British series, and right now I’m in the middle of Season 2 of Doc Martin, and Season 2 of Skins. Those shows are about as opposite as you can get, and yet both feel so British to me. They’re about the only thing that keep me going instead of dropping to my knees just for something different to do.
