Can you believe that’s not the longest I’ve done on a treadmill? The longest was a nice solid and very boring 4 hours.
You gotta do what you gotta do!
I’ve done even longer around a 200 metre track. I think about 5 hours. It was actually surprisingly pleasant. I used to do long runs around the track a lot. It was actually REALLY useful in terms of mental training. I honestly think I’ve lost some mental muscle once I stopped running around that track and on the treadmill for long runs so much.
Somehow I’m very good at dealing with the mind numbing-ness. It’s one of the reasons I want to try an indoor ultra this fall. I’m debating between the 6 hour or 12 hour run.
The trick now is not to smash my knee again and proceed to get sick for 2 weeks.
