My average speed for the first 100 miles was about 19.5 mph. Maybe this is too quick of a start and poor pacing. . . The plan was to simply build a buffer during daylight with fresh legs, low wind and no sun.
Моето първо ултра състезание трябваше да е на 24-часовия Sebring през февруари във Флорида. Поради конфликти в графика се наложи да го анулирам. Реших да се запиша за популярното 12 часово “Calvins Challenge 12h ” В Охайо. Това бе и логичния избор за да тествам уменията си в по-кратка дистанция и използвам това като подготовка […]
