The winner?

Let’s call it a draw. B I made it 19 miles (I justified that since I had a mile to walk home from the train and 19 treadmill miles = at least 20 outside miles since there’s no way to make that thing go downhill, just work with me okay!) B But I will not be listing my time. B I think it was an average of over 10min miles because I would take a stretching break, or a crawl up in a ball and pray break. B I did try Gu Chumps. B It tasted good, but I don’t think my stomach approved, or maybe it was the running 19 miles on a treadmill that made me feel like vomit. B Either way, I’m counting this as a 20 miler and I have 3 left until the big day. B Hopefully next weekend’s weather will go above 15B Fahrenheit so my fingers won’t have the risk of frostbite.

Do you ever take your long runs onto a treadmill?

How do you fuel for those 20 milers?

  1. I did 17 on the treadmill this weekend. It isn’t ideal, but I hate being cold. Luckily I have a treadmill at home, so I watch movies and it kind of goes fast. Great job!

  2. Robin, your Saturday DM post is what motivated me. I told myself suck it up, its cold outside, you have treadmill access, and no excuse. Get going, look what that girl did while you took your 4 hour nap on the couch during the “snow”

  3. 19 treadmill miles??? Jeepers…. I find 15 minutes hard haha. But I guess I am in a treadmill hate camp rather than lover. Did you watch tv or listen to music?

    My long runs are usually more in the 10-12 miles range- but I fuel with coffee and toast 🙂

  4. i listen to podcasts with a mix of music. If there was a dvd player that would have made my night. I don’t watch the tv available because every time there’s a commercial I would lose my motivation for running. If i was less clumsy, I’d like to try loading a moving on my ipad but i sense that horror story waiting to happen.

    Toast and coffee sound excellent! I don’t think I can crawl without caffeine.
