May 30, 2009

12 miles for me today in the heat of the day again. I did better than last Monday when I had a slight dizzy spell. I started out at 11am today and finished right before 2pm. My total time includes a total of 13 minutes over the 4 times I stopped for fluid or food. I didn't feel like using the fuel belt of a hand held bottle, so I walked a 2.3 mile loop around my neighborhood, stopping at my house each round to drink/eat something. Average pace including stops was 14:54, average actual walking pace was 13:48.

This is more than fast enough to get me through 100 miles in less than 30 hours.

21 days to go.


  1. Thanks for the comment. I will be following you as you crush Mohican! I also just ran across that 24 hour race in Cleveland, and instead of a fall marathon, that just might be the ticket. Good luck.

  2. Sounds like you're doing great headed into these last 3 weeks before the Mohican. I can see how you would be freaking out as it is getting pretty close now. I look forward to hearing all about it. Take care!

  3. I don't know about crushing Mohican... I am just hoping it doesn't crush me!

    thanks, dirtdawk and Meredith for your support!

    I need all of it that I can get!
