My PB at the Jerseville 100 in April 2010 made it to the 11th place of the "2010 TOP 100-MILE TIMES -WOMEN in the Ultrarunning Magazine. http://www.ultrarunning.com/ I just missed the top 10 by 4 minutes but I am very happy to see my name behind some of the best American female ultrarunners.
Yesterday when I checked the weather outside my house I decided in a split second that there is no way I would run outside in those conditions – wet and cold! The treadmill next to the fireplace looked way more appealing than getting soaking wet and freezing cold. I don’t really like running on the treadmill, but wintertime in Toronto can be quite tough. Right now it looks like this winter will never end. I’m really getting tired of all this exercising with the snow shovel and I’m sure I’m not the only one.
Anyway, I ended up running 33 miles yesterday and another 22 miles today – yes on the treadmill! It definitely was the most I ever ran on the treadmill in two days. All in all it wasn’t as bad as it sounds. All you need is an iPod loaded with lots of music. The best tunes for long runs are very long songs like:
Genesis – Abacab Genesis – Tonight, tonight, tonight Don McLean – American Pie Peter Frampton – Do you feel like we do Pink Floyd – Echoes Pink Floyd – Shine on you crazy diamond Iron Butterfly – In-A-Godda-Da-Vida Doors – L.A. Women Doors – Light my fire Doors – Riders on the storm Doors – The end Dire Straits – Money for nothing Dire Straits – Telegraph Road The Temptations – Papa was a Rollin' Stone Prince – Purple Rain Michael Jackson – Thriller Mike Oldfield – Tubular Bells Jimi Hendrix – Voodoo Child Rolling Stones – You can’t always get what you want
