Don’t test me bish
I think people who train for and are running 200 mile races are fully aware of the risks involved lol wut?
To restate a post up thread, running for 4 days straight until you hallucinate is disordered.
Do they get to sleep/nap? Or are they up the whole time? I’m fascinated by the idea but that’s so far! Where does this start and end? Are there laps?
Yes they sleep for short periods and eat through the whole thing. My station is actually a sleep station so we’ll have cots set up and will be in change of waking them at the time they tell us.
They also have pacers to make sure they aren’t running alone through the woods while exhausted and vulnerable.
Edit: it’s just one big loop.
Eating, sleeping and still hallucinating? That’s intense.
on a less extreme note, I ran 4.3 miles tonight and nothing hurts except my blisters. Hooray! I was expecting to need more time.
For anyone who might want to run tomorrow, consider running 2.23
I wanted to run a 10k this weekend. Based on guesstimates of various segments that I have run around my neighborhood, but no actual measuring, I put together a mental plan of what route I would take. I literally hit the 10k mark in the parking lot of the building adjacent to ours!
I LOVE when you hit your target where you think you will
I was disproportionately excited I had prepared to do some extra loops depending on what my watch said when I got close to our building and then I was like NO WAY! I think I was more excited about having planned the perfect route than I was about finishing my race (with myself).
Have you guys heard of the app footpath?
This allows you to easily map out a route and know the distance.
I use it regularly when I feel like switching up from my usual road runs.
I have not! I know you can do that on Mapmyrun. When I lived in Boston I had this great paper map with a grid of the distances between / among the various bridges over the river. I should make something like that for my city as a public service, haha.
@Canaligator that would be cool!
You should check out footpath! It’s very user friendly. More so than mapmyrun imo.
Haha I have tried MapMyRun and I just got annoyed with it and gave up and returned to freestylin'. I will take a look at footpath. I just got my medal in the mail from the 10 mile race that I didn't get to run in DC, so I have to figure out a good 10 mile route so I can earn it.
Does that map still exist...?
YES! It's from Marathon Sports. Here you go!
Oh and wow, someone made a website where you can program in where you want to start/stop etc and come up with your distance!
https://www.angio.net/personal/run/river.htm That is also very cool! Originally I was going to try to run my 10 miler around the Charles but due to lack of facilities / bathrooms etc I think it's probably best to stick around here.
It is finally cooling off here, and the smoke is pretty much gone or at least down to "won't make your throat sting when you breathe." I actually managed 1.2mi straight running and 2.5mi total! It's not any kind of real distance, lol, but it's more than I've been able to do in a while. If I keep at it, I might be able to do a Santa 5k!
I'm late again, but once I was on my feet for 16 hours for a race and I hallucinated someone was following me
ETA: and I thought I was hallucinating that the forest floor was moving, but nope, turned out to be swarms of real daddy long legs.
