This evening I decided to play it safe and run with Sven. I ran 8 miles, with the middle 4 at marathon pace. My middle 4 miles came in at 10:08, 10:09, 10:09, and 10:10. Bam, nailed it! Except all I had to do was set the treadmill speed and mindlessly run. Here are my feet on the treadmill. Hash tag proof and all that jazz. Except I’m not on Twitter. I am on Instagram, where hash tags are also used (or are they just called tags?), but chose not to give more than one branch of social media a picture of my feet this evening.

It was a run full of guilty pleasures. I started out listening to my iPod for the first 2.5 miles. Sven has an auxiliary plug, so I was able to plug my iPod right into the treadmill and listen to my music through the speakers. It sounded pretty good. I have a music confession. Right now I cannot get over the new Miley Cyrus song ‘Wrecking Ball’. I really like the chorus and I like running to it. Don’t get me wrong, I think the music video is distasteful. But the song… my new guilty pleasure.

And from there I moved on to my TV guilty pleasure: Abby’s Ultimate Dance Competition. Really, it’s just the show that gets me through until Dance Moms comes back on. But secretly I like it almost as much as Dance Moms.
The best part about guilty pleasures? They make the miles fly by while I run on the treadmill. I pinkie promise I never got the least bit bored during the entire 8 miles. Plus I’m killing two birds with one stone. I’m getting my miles in and cleaning out our DVR.
What are your music and TV guilty pleasures?
