#45 Irving

Postby Spirit Unleashed » Sun Apr 05, 2015 11:33 am

Short story: Wow! 5h06.xx

I did really well. While I ran 7x1s, I did run fast when I was running. 2 pit stops. My 10k split was one hour almost exactly. Uh, waaay too fast.
Fuel: 20 oz Accelerade, 20 oz of course provided Gatorade or water, 6 gels.
What is cool is that my knee was not having any problems so I felt confident about running in the last couple of miles. I achieved that tiredness which comes from really running a marathon but not Hurting yourself.

A long report mixed in with my mental and spiritual BS is here:

Good job! I enjoyed the long version of your report.
"It's now very common to hear people say 'I'm rather offended by that.' As if that gives them certain rights. It's actually nothing more... than a whine. 'I find that offensive.' It has no meaning; it has no purpose; it has no reason to be respected as a phrase. 'I am offended by that.' Well, so fcuking what."

I just watched the YouTube of the course. Flat and fast, some of the pathways looked nice.
