and its jurek right from the beginning..........comin through the Lyons Ridge checkpoint at mile 11.5 in 1:39.....just a hair under the pace he set last year, but we shall see if he can hold it for 89 more miles !http://www.coolrunning.com/forums/cool.gif|src=http://www.coolrunning.com/forums/cool.gif|border=0!
what you just said is the most insanely idiotic thing i have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent post were you even close to anything resembling a rational thought. Everyone in this forum is now dumber for having listened to you. I award you no points, and may god have mercy on your soul.

leaders just past Red Star Ridge at mile 17, Jurek in 3rd place at 2:35, 8 minutes behind Mike Trevino of CA, a relative unknown.........just like Jurek was a few years back !http://www.coolrunning.com/forums/wink.gif|src=http://www.coolrunning.com/forums/wink.gif|border=0!
its still early, so these stats dont mean much. but we shall see what develops!
well, bout time to crack open the bottle of champagne, jurek is past 70 miles with over a half hour lead. He's 15 minutes ahead of where he was last year when he ran 16:19, setting himself up for a possible attempt at under 16 hours. truly amazing
The other day I was approaching this training thing from the mathematic angle. I figured out that if you steadily increased your long runs the reccomended percentage(10% every other week), by 2015 you should be able to run 14,933,275,590,000 miles, if you started out with a long run of 2 miles.
I decided math doesn't work for every thing. But if I added ten miles to my long runs every year by 2015 I should be able to run 122 miles.
That would be a 10% increase every 15 weeks.

oh, yeah, running...base mileage....here we go again. That never ending cycle thing: get in shape, get lazy, get in shape, get lazy.....oh when will it end.
Well, tomorrow I'm going trail riding(on a bike), it's slightly more exercise than Calculus. I'll work on the running part.....uhhh.....Monday? Tuesday? yeah.....
just did a 'recovery' 12 miles in 1:27 the other day. think thats like 7:15 pace or something. just gotta hold it for 88 more miles and i'm all set. think i'm startin to like this college thing

count me in. Only 12 years, but hey, I'm a quick study !http://www.coolrunning.com/forums/smile.gif|src=http://www.coolrunning.com/forums/smile.gif|border=0!
I like the idea of the AGA 421K race. None of these shorty 100 milers
Of course the doctors will have to supply the air fare for the poor high school math teachers (me).. !http://www.coolrunning.com/forums/smile.gif|src=http://www.coolrunning.com/forums/smile.gif|border=0!
Let me know, and I'll be there. I'll be the one in front of ya
training for the run tomorrow morning: ?? miles in the woods, on a rocky/muddy/twisty/turny/grassy/up/down/steep trail. high temp predicted to be 43F. sweetness.
oh, and i'm pondering trying the B&A Trail Marathon this March. it would be my first marathon, but i don't think i'll have my base/quasi-speed high enough in time. but i haven't completely discounted the thought yet.
