AM - 5 miles with Finn before work - some rain showers were about.

PM - around 4 miles on the treadmill at lunchtime.   Sometimes when I am on a particular brand of treadmill at the gym and I am running too closely to front, my hand sometimes inadvertently strikes and actuates the control button for "cool down" which is on the handbar in front of the control panel...suddenly arresting my pace down to 4 mph - and requiring to me to restart.  Happened on this run - and so I am not quite sure how far I had gotten as I quickly reset to restart the machine.  I get so irritated when that happens..."stupid treadmill" - when I really should be saying to myself - "run further back on the belt, and this would not happen..."

I have experienced similar illogical emotions.

Yep. Same here. Ruins my rhythm.
