6-7 on a track<br>
Probably the same on a mill. I dont belong to a gym so its very, very rare for me to run on a treadmill.

Ugh. Both make me want to shoot myself. I dunno how you folks in cold states do it.<br><br>
I think the longest I've run on a track is maybe 3200m... and perhaps 5 miles on a dreadmill. I wanted to poke my eyes out afterward, but once I got off the DM I felt seasick and had to go lay down.

Track probably about 5 mile... mile & halfmile repeats in XC - never did a straight run on one... only speedwork. (Outdoor track) -- nothing on an indoor track<br><br>
Treadmill, probably about 4. And I didn't like it.

I think about 7-8 on a track, and 18 on a TM.<br><br>
I could only do that kind of mileage on a track if it's an interval workout. No way could I last more than maybe 3 miles easy pace. Too boring.<br><br>
I could go longer on a TM if needed due to weather. I alternately let my mind wander, have music/TV/DVDs (one of the Y's in this area has a DVD player with each TM and a couple gyms have individual TV screens), or recruit buddies for company. I prefer outdoors, but definitely have no problem with the treadmill. I'd rather do a long run on a TM than something like 7-9 miles on it, for some reason.

i've done a couple of 5 and 5.5 hour runs on the TM, though WTR wins the track award.<img alt="notworthy.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/notworthy.gif">

I have run 10K on a track...it was a race.<br><br>
I ran 100 laps of a cruise ship track which should have been around 6 miles. The guy with me said his GPS said 25 miles...I'm thinking the fact the ship was moving at about 20 mph may have had something to do with that. <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><br>
20 miles on the dread...it was treadful.
