I'm pretty sure this is the longest run I've done on the treadmill, at least where I've done the entire long run on the treadmill. I had every intention of doing my run outside when I woke up at 5:30 this morning, then I heard the wind howling, got online and looked up the weather for our area - yeah, 30-40 mph wind gusts, severe weather advisory. I just wasn't in the mood to even try it, so I traded my long pants and jacket for shorts and a tank, and got moving. While I ran I watched a movie on Netflix about some crazy people climbing Mt. Everest, then since I still had a lot of time to fill, I also watched 'The Spirit of the Marathon', which I've already seen a couple of times, but it's a great one to watch while running on a treadmill, training for a marathon! You just can't NOT run while you watch that movie, at least I can't. I have to say, this was one of my best treadmill runs. I ran 15.3 miles in just over 3 hours (well, more like 3 and 1/4), and I was able to run at a steady, albeit moderately slow pace for almost 3 hours without stopping or walking at all. I did have to stop at one point to get a drink refill - running indoors the sweat just
drips pours off the body!
(The only accurate number here is the distance. On my treadmill, every thing resets at "normal" maxes, like it only goes to 100 minutes, and 999 calories burned, then resets.)
Well, I've already done a bit of stretching, but I think I'll do a little more before I slip into the ice bath I have waiting for me...
