British Astronaut Sets Marathon Record in Space: Strapped to a treadmill on board the International Space Stat...

British astronaut Tim Peake ran the London Marathon as a virtual participant aboard the International Space Station—harnessed to a specialized treadmill—in 3:35:21. He became the second person to finish a marathon in space, and now holds the extraterrestrial record at the distance. Hello #London ! Fancy a run? :) #LondonMarathon https://t.co/CvaUjUo7IU pic.twitter.com/SLckqOp8Gk — Tim Peake (@astro_timpeake) April 24, 2016 In a blog posted Monday , Peake wrote, “The run went better than expected.” He ran negative splits, writing that his legs felt good for most of the race. His biggest challenge was dealing with the shoulder harness, which forces his body weight onto the treadmill belt in zero gravity. “When I got to 10 miles I realized that my legs were feeling okay but my shoulders were beginning to hurt, so I needed to finish the run quicker than planned,” he wrote.
