I can not stand a treadmill.

I literally feel like its the worst form of torture imaginable which is why I am still in awe of your 24 hour endeavor on one. My hate is actually so deep that when the doctor said after I'm finally healed and can run again that I would have to stick to the 3 "Tr's": Treadmill, Track, and Trail, I said you mean 2 right? Track and Trail because Treadmill is not an option.

I opted to run outside in the freezing cold and snow all winter rather then hit the treadmill. In the 6 solid months of winter we experienced, my first ever running during a winter and first winter in 11 years, I only hit the treadmill once and I wanted to stab myself in the eye. It was also my first time hitting a treadmill in well over a year and was only the third time ever that I have ran on one. I choose running outside in 100* days in Florida over treadmill running I hate it so much.

So um, do I get extra points because my hatred runs so deep? :)

Vanessa @ Gourmet Runner said...

Love treadmill running. I zone out completely, I don't need any entertainment other than the random thoughts going on in my own head!

Morgan said...

I'm already a follower, obviously.

Vanessa @ Gourmet Runner said...

Pickles = awesome.
Pickle Juice = Ugh. Not so much.

Morgan said...

I am not a fan of the pickle juice or the pickle or anything resembling in taste of pickle. Apparently we will never be BFF's because I would not want to share pickles or treadmills with you. Or perhaps that's why we'd be BFF's because I would happily give you all of mine.

Nelly said...

lol, I already have a Run EMZ shirt and a road ID shoe thing so don't enter me in the giveaway (I think everyone should have a road ID thing of some kind for safety).

I'll answer your questions anyways, haha
4. talk about your 24 hour treadmill experience!

5. I hate treadmill running - no scenery, the same people are always next to me, and my mind just wants to check out and be done with it - a necessary evil during the winter months unfortunately.

7. no pickle juice for me

8. it's always hammer time - I still have the MC Hammer cassette from 1992!

Vanessa @ Gourmet Runner said...

I'd love to hear you talk more about your 24 hour run, and how you got it into your head that it was even humanly possible. Because parts 1-74 (or however many you had!) weren't enough for me!!!

Morgan said...

Hammer Time is the moment before a dance off escalates out of control and the opposing dancer drops the hammer down and shames the other dancer.

I think you have to talk about the 24hr run don't you?! I wanna know how you pick your mileage for training too!

Sabrina said...

I love and hate treadmill running. I love that it can keep my pace so consistent and track mileage so well, but it gets boring because there's no change in scenery.

Jess @ Blonde Ponytail said...

Love the TM--it is my favorite way to do speed workouts!

Carrie @ Confessions of a Dietitian said...

I believe Hammer time is ANYTIME AND EVERY TIME.

Carrie @ Confessions of a Dietitian said...

I actually like TM running. It is 98 deg here right now. I just can't.

Sabrina said...

I guess I do like pickle juice. I mean, I like pickles, so I guess I must like the juice, right?

Hammer time occurs shortly before the finish line: time to drop the hammer!

I love pickles, so I would THINK that I would like pickle juice. BUT, I've never had it.

Ashby Family said...

I hate treadmill running because it's SO boring. And hot. But I LOVE treadmill running because how easy it is to change up the pace and know exactly how fast you are going.

Ashby Family said...

It's hammer time when I hit a really big hill. Hammer it up!

I freaking LOVE pickle juice!

JC said...

I'd like to hear you talk about the mental aspect of running. what goes on in your mind when you are running, and training to run, for 24 hours straight on a treadmill?

JC said...

I used to HATE running on a treadmill. I think when you start out running, its a bit easier to do outside - there's scenery and somewhere to "go." But, I'm super bad at pacing myself, so being on a treadmill is nice to keep yourself constant, and honest!

JC said...

Hammer time is when you need to STOP, and check in with reality - and not the boring reality, the fun kind that makes you smile. when life is too serious, too stressful, too crazy. THAT's when you need some hammer time.

The loves of treadmill running are you can just jump on & jump off at any time - you always know exactly how far & how fast. At least for those of us w/o a garmin or other device :) The dislike is NO SCENARY (except for watching all the funny gym rats trying to hook up)!!! he he

Claudia said...

I love pickle juice! No joke!

Claudia said...

It is hammer time when you run a marathon and they have Hammer-gel at the aid station. Lame, I know. And it doesn't have anything to do with those flashy pants. But the apple cinnamon flavor is not half-bad.

Claudia said...

I am undecided about treadmills. So far the only time I used one was at the running store to get my gait checked. That was very scary, because I was worried I would fall off.

Claudia said...

Awesome giveaway!

stoppingfordaisies said...

I follow your blog! And I just bumped you up to #1387 when I voted!

stoppingfordaisies said...

I'd actually try to listen to you talk about the treadmill some more... I could listen to that all day!

stoppingfordaisies said...

I don't hate or love treadmill running... I mean, I wouldn't like it for long cuz I think I'd get bored but I think I'd like it because it gets me out of this heat and I could watch tv.

stoppingfordaisies said...

Oh crap, forgot to make that I'm a follower a separate comment from the fact that I bumped you. So this is my "I'm a follower" comment.

stoppingfordaisies said...

Oh and I do not like pickle juice. Well, I do like pickles tho..

stoppingfordaisies said...

It is hammer time... when people are driving me crazy!

Alicia said...

Bumped you up to 1389!

Alicia said...

I think you should talk about your 24 hour run and how to use your blog to fund raise for charities you are passionate about at the blogger summit.

I LOVE my treadmill because I can run while the kiddos are sleeping. Also, speed intervals are SO much more consistent on the 'mill. IMHO.

I hate treadmill running because I run to be outside. And I am really clumsy and fall off of them

Arica said...

Yum pickle juice.

Caratunk Girl said...

Hammer time? This weekend at Rev3 Quassy. WOOT

Arica said...

If I prepare mentally for a long treadmill run I can do it. But if weather or lack of babysitters sneak up on me, it can sometimes be rough.

Arica said...

I follow...

Caratunk Girl said...

You should talk about mental toughness. Because you have more of it than anyone I have ever (cyber) met. And it is SO inspiring. SO I would totally freaking go to that.

Also I want you to know I use Freaking instead of the other F word because of you now.

Arica said...

Seriously hope Blogging Summit in Vegas is my Christmas present. Running is personal. People run for lots of different reasons but I want to know more about the "24." When did you decide you wanted 24 hours?

Shawn said...

5. Suuuucks - No stimuli
6. I follow

8. Hammer time when the "BOSS" says it's HAMMER TIME!!!!!

Awesome giveaway!! I am totally a follower!

Cynthia said...

I would love to listen to you talk about how you got started running, and also about nutrition and that stuff.

skoval21 said...

I have to say I do love the TM to run on!! I was so excited when i found your blog and how much you run on the TM also!! It is reliable and the weather is always nice while running on the treadmill!! I am close to a potty @ all times and not in the middle of nowhere if nature calls!

Cynthia said...

I just recently (thanks to you) have started loving to run on my TM. It's convinient, I can run hill repeats or speed workouts without having to think to much but just set the mill and go, it's helped me overcome some mental hurdles in running!

skoval21 said...

I do love pickles but I have to be honest I have never tried just pickle juice!

Cynthia said...

Of course I follow you, here, your other blog, twitter, facebook, dailymile... ok no i'm not a stalker, well maybe just the good kind :)

Cynthia said...

LOVE pickle juice!

skoval21 said...

Oh it is always Hammer time while having a dance party with a 6 and 3 year old!!

Cynthia said...

Hammer time to me is just when you get the urge to bust out in a dance move, preferably with the parachute pants on.

So when do you think it's to legit to quit?

skoval21 said...

I think you will totally rock in vegas and i bet people would be amazed to hear about your 24hr treadmill run!!!

Goose said...

Follower, of course. :)

Goose said...

If I were able to attend the blogging conference, I would LOVE to hear you talk about pushing yourself and reaching beyond the stars. I know it sounds cliche, but the amazing things you've accomplished are fuel for us small-time runners dreaming big.

Goose said...

I don't HATE treadmill running, but I dislike it because it always seems so damn hot in the gym. If I had one at my house, windows all open I'd probably dig it more.

Goose said...

I don't like pickles, so I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that I wouldn't like their juice, either. :)

Goose said...

It is hammer time every single second of every single day! Because as MC says "EITHER WORK HARD OR YOU MIGHT AS WELL QUIT!"

I tolerate treadmill running but will choose indoor track (13 laps/mile) over it almost any day. I actually find the treadmil is harder and I have to go slower than when I am running off the mill.

Anne said...

I voted (have been daily!) but I have no idea what number I was.

Anne said...

I have to admit I've never drank pickle juice.

Anne said...

Hammer time? It's when work is crazy, all three kids are on my nerves, hubby is home, and it's time for me to get out and run hard to work out the stress.

Anne said...

What would I want to hear about?

- how does one actually eat a 5 pound gummy?
- about the 24 hour run. Even though I've read the blog, I want to hear more!
- your favorite races
- how you balance being a mom and running hours a day

Would LOVE to hear you talk about treadmill running-secrets to getting over hating it. Ok, well, hate is a strong word, but I'd love some help learning to like it a little more!

Catey said...

I don't love treadmill running because I get so dang bored. Even if I'm watching something I can't just zone out the way I do when I'm running outside. I'm entirely too aware of every step I take on the 'mill.

I do not like pickle juice. My daughter put the lid on the jar of pickles yesterday but not all the way, so when I picked them up to move them it spilled all over me and the fridge. It actually made me think of you! lol (truly) But then the smell hit me and it made me throw up in my mouth a little bit. And I had to go change my pants (not due to a SUAR moment) because they smelled like the pickle juice that had splashed all over them.
