I do not recommend doing 14 miles on the treadmill, but that's what I did today. Life gets in the way sometimes.
I was to do all miles at 1:1, except 3,6,9,12. Those were run solid.
Mile 1: 13:49
Mile 2: 13:12
Mile 3: 12:24
Mile 4: 13:26
Mile 5: 13:34
This is about where I wanted to quit. I didn't DARE, though. I did NOT want to disappoint John! I forged ahead.
Mile 6: 12:24
Mile 7: 14:02
Mile 8: 14:19
Mile 9: 12:35
Mile 10: 14:29
At this point I turned on the Garmin; weather be damned! I was headed outdoors no matter what. But then Chasen and Isaac got home and I was feeling a tiny bit of encouragement.
Mile 11: 14:51
Mile 12: 13:15 (I do believe this required a sitting break.)
Mile 13: 14:46 (This is when Chasen brought out the theme to Rocky on his ipod for me.)
Mile 14: 14:35
My next longrun is a mere 8 miles! Hooray! However, they all have to be RUN (i.e. no 1:1 business). Yikes! I can do it; I did 6 that way months ago. Wish me luck!
