alright Indoor Running 15 mi 02:04 08:17 pace

For some reason I decided to do this run at the gym. Maybe it was the rain or I was just bored of my usual routes. Either way it was a pretty tough run mentally. First time in a long time I considered cutting it short. Last few miles I really picked up the pace though and that seemed to get me out of my funk.

This was my last midweek long run in this training cycle, so I feel pretty good that I stuck it out. Also kept my heart rate nice and low as planned.

On a positive note this brings my monthly mileage to 269, a new record, an increase of 61 miles over last month and 166 miles more than February 2011!

    That is awesome. I have done a few long runs on the tm and it really does build metal toughness. You'll be a better man for it! And the mileage you are running is insane!

    good for you running that long on the treadmill did it shut off after an hour? They tend to shut off so that it gives other people time on them

    Thanks all. Yes, the TM shuts down after 60 minutes. There were plenty open so I just hit stop to avoid the mandatory cool down and restarted it. @Theresa - I'm doing a 100 mile ultra in three weeks.
