TREADMILL Running for 390 Minutes

Reader email just in . . . .

a la "Manly Runner" :

"Just curious, what do you do when you run 44.14 miles on a TM?  Watch Oprah, ESPN, News?  If you tell me you don't watch TV my brain will implode.  Of course that is not humanly possible.  Wait are you human?"


First, Chris K, you should know.

I
don't
watch
Oprah.

e v e r.

Mostly, just so I can tell people, "I don't watch Oprah ever."
I think she's awesome.  I think she does amazing things with her celebrity status.  She is one heck of a business woman.

I just don't like the show.

Now, what did I do on this particular day for this particular long run?

[heee, heee, you are going to wish you never asked]

Hour one = nada, zilch, zero.  NO music, no TV, no view [it was still dark]

Hour two = BBC world news . . . mixed with answering work emails.

Hour Three = Nada.  NBC closed captioning wasn't working.  Local Fox news is ....well...crap and I was tired of the English accents on BBC.

Hour Four = NBC captioning back on!  It's TODAY show time!  I think Natalie Morales is insanely beautiful!

[few more emails]

Hour Five = TV off ...... turned on tunes. "All of the Lights" - listened to that song about 14 times.

[text from Mom, "stop now, that's long enough" ]

[doorbell......gift.....yay me]

Hoped back on......
Hour Six = texted my BFF Dawn.  LOVE her!!

Pita calls . . . "Are you freaking serious?  You know you have that little Boston Marathon in 12 days, right?"

Me:  Awwww, man, totally forgot. ;) bad joke.

Enter "stop" button.

Chris K.  Does this work for you?

Am I human? [be nice]

It. was. awesome.

I was the happiest tired ever!

I love your mom's text!
ok you WILL lower the mileage for Boston right?
thank you for the advice today
I am leaning towards following the plan, I just got doubts because some people posted comments on Wednesday and they were saying not to run 12 the week before..I don't have experience so I started wondering what should I do. I worked hard this time, speedwork and more mileage and I want to do well.

Chris K said...

Yes EMZ, that works for me. And thank you for correcting my spelling error. And, I also short changed you .30 miles. I comprehend, but I simply don't understand. You. Wa wa wee wa.

Jess @ Blonde Ponytail said...

Wow. I wondered too what you did!! Coach asked me how long it took you to run 41.44 miles too!

amazing. A natural ultra runner. Watch out Dean!

Marlene said...

Somehow 390 minutes sounds even longer than 41.44 miles! W-O-W.

Just when I thought I couldn't be any more in awe of you. Your like a superhero you should really patent an EMZ action figure.

Aimee said...

I agree with Erica..you are like a superhero! :)

JenniferLeah said...

if I don't get to meet you in Boston, I will cry for weeks.

Candice @ I Have Run said...

You have inspired me to try part of my runs without tunes.

Other than that, it's all been said. YOU. ROCK.

Matty O said...

No, seriously... ARE you HUMAN???

Well, come 24hr day, you canNOT say that you didn't train for it ;)
