17 miles = 2 hours, 45 minutes (9:42 pace)
Yes, I spent nearly 3 hours on a treadmill facing the wall. And guess what? I LOVED IT! The gym has cardio machines with TVs, so I watched some news, lots of E! and an episode of Chopped to make the time go by faster. The best part of all? When I stopped to finish, and the treadmill said 7 miles (I ran the first 10 and went for water) and the guy next to me said, "Wow, I've never seen a girl run 7 miles on a treadmill before." You have NO IDEA how satisfying it was to say, "Actually, I just ran 17."
Any guesses what I was ready to do after 17 miles on a treadmill? If you guessed eat supermarket sushi in the parking lot, you're right! Hubs and I split some tuna and salmon nigiri, and then went with some rolls with salmon, cream cheese, cucumber, and brown rice.

After an ice bath and a little cleaning around the house, I have officially retired to the couch. If you need me, I'll be doing a combination of blogging/watching Lifetime movies, with only these two guys to keep me company.
Would you rather run your long run in 80 degrees & 85% humidity or on a treadmill?
I know some people get bored on treadmills--I guess I'm not one of them. I know it's definitely easier to run on a treadmill, so I make sure to keep the incline at a minimum of 1%. Can't beat it in the summer!
Are you a sushi fan? What's your absolute favorite?
Love it! It is sad that I actually loved this stuff from the Kroger? Maybe I was just hungry after my long run, but it really was good! I usually get tuna on it's own or nigiri-style with white rice. (Although I have been known to down a few shrimp tempura rolls!)
