Coffee and Treadmill Tuesday

I'm starting a new tradition.

It's not taking over the making of cheesy scrambled eggs. mrC is MUCH better at it than I am :)

Every Tuesday the Shenzhen Women's International Club, SWIC, meets for coffee. Three times a month it's at the Hilton where I have a membership to the fitness center. For an hour or so we mingle over coffee and treats, catch up, and make plans.

Today I packed my gym bag so I could hit the fitness center after coffee. I figured since I'm already there, why not make a regular date with the treadmill?

After a quick change in the locker room, I hit the treadmill for a good 30 minute run.

I forgot the Nike+ shoe pod that connects to my watch, so I had to run holding my phone (no armband either) while using the Nike+ app, but it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. I can't remember the last time I used the app, so it gave me time to check out what's new with it.

After logging a comfortable 3 miles, I added another new (but old) tradition: planks. When I first started running in Ohio, my friend taught me to plank after our runs. When I moved to New Hampshire that sort of fell by the wayside.

I cooled down with some post-run stretching and biked back to apartment. My legs seem happier when I go for a little spin on the same days that I run.

Do you have any fitness traditions?
What do you do after a run?
