It is no secret that I am not a fan of running on the threadmill. It’s my emergency solution for when I have to stay at home and can’t go outside. Today I have had the run in the back of my head all the time, not looking forward to it but telling myself I should do it, get the work done. I did do it and it actually wasn’t that bad today. I also did strength exercises and balance work. My main motivation for today was that the Bigs backyard ultra world championship took place this weekend and the winner ran for 60 hours. It is just beyond crazy. It’s a Last Man Standing competition so the runners run laps of 6.7 km until there is just one left. They should rename the event though because this year the winner was Maggie Guterl. It’s the first time a woman has won the worlds in backyard ultra and it is so inspiring. I watched videos online from the race and she looked amazingly fresh after running 402.3 km in 60 hours.
Anyway, when there are people running for 60 hours straight I need to get my 45 min threadmill runs done without all my complaints.
