While on vacation in Palm Springs, CA last month, the temperatures were:
HIGH: 111 degrees
LOW: 80 degrees
How did I get my run in?
1) Wake up at 5AM to run outside?
2) Run on the treadmill in an air conditioned room?
Hmmmm…This was vacation. There was no way I was waking up at 5AM. Plus, it was still too hot to run 16 miles at that hour. So…
I decided to set a world record for most mileage ever run (by me) on the treadmill.
And so, this became my view for a very long 16 mile run on the treadmill:
And this is what I saw out the window. Beautiful, but remember…HOT
I did it. I crushed my previous record of running 12 miles on the treadmill. Yes, it was boring, and no, I am not really a fan of the treadmill, but I am grateful to have the option when necessary. And I truly hope I never have to beat the current record of 16 miles.
How do you desert dwellers do it?
What’s the most mileage you’ve ever ran on a treadmill?
