    They didn’t know my shoulder was broken so I just kept riding

    People don't Understand how hard it is to win a bike race...That my problem...I make it look easy

    It's Easy to lie with stats, but it's easier to lie without them.

    Re: the pact

    hahahaaa awesome, long live the pact!

    Well I'm back for a check-in...not much exciting news to report unfortunately, been busy with my band and so forth so yes, building the long runs back up again...

    Gearing up for 14k City 2 Surf in August, then a crack at my second half marathon a month after that- hopefully under 2 hours!

    Really gotta focus on building the distance up and keeping it there, I've been lazing around with short runs for too long.

    Hope everyone's doing well, keeping healthy and having fun =)

    Re: the pact

    Anyone been following this years WS100??? Brian Morrison wins it with a time of 18:05:13. Beat the second place by 12 minutes. That guy is a beast.

    I was kind of hoping Karnazes would do better but....

    So... Who's ready??? Only 9 more years!!

    Re: the pact

    sigh... I really hope that I will be able to do it, but it seems like I keep uncovering more biomechanical problems that are hard to fix - constantly tight hamstrings, overarching my lower back, tensing my back too much... but things are ok. I did my first team adventure/survival race a week ago. It was interesting but honestly not really my thing. Maybe if we were a bit more competitive it would have been different. I don't know. I still have Laurel Highlands Ultra on my mind. I would love to get a 70 miler under my belt next year, but I don't really see it happening to be honest. So for now I'm just enjoying my trail half marathons. How's everyone else?

    Re: the pact

    Clocked in 76minutes for the 14k City 2 Surf yesterday, here in Sydney.

    Not bad given that I havent been running much the last couple weeks due to illness/misadventure. I basically ran out of steam in the last km so missed out on cracking 75- but next year I'm up for it!

    I should be in much better shape this yr for the 1/2 marathon in another month, still hoping sub-2hrs, we'll see how that one goes...

    unenlightened, how much of the posture/form and that sort of thing is essential to the super-long runs, is it an efficiency sort of thing, or what effect does it otherwise have on you?

    keep it up y'all,
    cheers,
    Mike

    Re: the pact

    I've noticed that most of my posture/biomechanical problems are pretty noticeable after about 20 miles, sometimes less. On the long runs my lower back tends to get stiff and sore, but on the really long runs (longer than marathon distance), I tend to notice a lot more generalized fatigue. Basically posture can be very important - you'll notice it with fatigue and studies show that ultrarunners have some degree of muscular damage not only in muscles used for locomotion like the quads and hamstrings but also in postural muscles. Whatever your problems/injuries are that you can notice on a short run, try magnifying them many times over the course of an ultra. Sometimes it won't be so much a matter of pain, but fatigue and performance are certainly important aspects that can be affected too.

    Re: the pact

    Haha, add me to the pact.

    I'm hoping to run a marathon this year, so that would put me on target for the 100miler...

    Unless of course, I forget...  which I happen to do a lot :P
