|The best plan I've read for the 100/100. From the other thread:

A few of my teammates and I have been discussing the 100 beers and 100 miles for after we graduate next spring. Our plan was to do it the week leading up to the olympic trials, or potentially during the trials, but we still want to be able to be somewhat sober to watch the races.
Like has been mentioned before the best thing to do is to front load the running and back load the drinking with some cross over in the middle of the week.
This being said, your first run needs to be long, really long, pace does not matter so long as you do the miles, but we decided the run must be atleast 20 miles, and maybe 25-30 if your body can handle that kind of mileage. maybe 5 ish beers that first night, but thats about it. The the next day go out for 10 in the morning, and 10-15 in the evening. with a nap, and no beer in between. That night put down 10 beers
At this point, you are 2 days in 50 miles in, and only 15 beers down. Your body will be sore but half the running is done, you will need some ice, you will be hurting, and you might want to take next week off from running, and maybe life.
Day three should be divided into 3, 5 mile runs, you can add a mile or two if you feel brave, and in between runs, throw down 5 beers. so run before breakfast, before lunch, and before dinner, and then at night you can do 10 beers.
3 days: 65 miles, 35 beers
we are seriously slacking on the beer here, day four is a repeat of day 3, but if you can handle 10 beers in the evening, as you go out with your buddies, game on.
4 days: 80 miles, 55 beers...you are a champ
Now its day five, time to take the emphasis off of running and onto drinking. 5 miles in the morning, 5 miles at night, reserve the afternoon for drinking. nap and 5 beers in the afternoon, and 10 at night with the boys.
5 days: 90 miles, 70 beers
Day six, you can choose to finish up all of your running, or mix it up, my advice is repeat day five, so another 10 miles total, and another 15 beers total.
6 days: 100 miles, 85 beers
Day 7 just get to drinking, perhaps have a big celebration party with all your friends, throw down those last 15 beers, with nothing to worry about. You can move some of the beers from the 2nd and 3rd day to now if you would like since i might have put too much there, so move 5 from each and throw down 25 today, that is up to you.
And there you have our plan, the next week will be the trials and we will watch, it will be grand, and that is one hell of a graduation present to ourselves.
since the trials will be going on, we might look for a sponsor from a local microbrew while we perform this gross task for the sake of "enjoyment" and marketing.
