20 Mile Treadmill Run
|Video Watching on the Treadmill|
But today was different... Today I ran on the treadmill. I watched an old black and white mystery movie and and a chocolate cooking show while I ran with the fan and air conditioner cooling me off. I ran progressively faster as I went along and ended up finishing in just under 190 minutes (9:30/mi total ave). Seeing that I was able to speed up in the later miles was fun.
This run wasn't easy, but it was the best run I've had all week (and the longest). I don't feel nearly as tired as I did after my other shorter runs outside. I'm really glad that I have a treadmill so that I can run through the hot summer and be ready for a fall race - if I find one to run!
Pre-run: raisin toast and a banana
During: Gatorade and raisins
