Yeah, and substitute a WHOLE WEEKEND for one day. See the difference?
i think there was a thread on here a while back about doing the same thing, but substitute 100 for 24. that would be something to talk about.
this is the most obvious and best answer...if you're a decent runner who can get through 24 without too much trouble. why ruin a good time once you start drinking by going and running more? get er done in one shot.
Get up am and run 24 miler. Hydrate, eat, nap etc. Eat some more - heavy meal of steak and potatoes - more water- now hit that case - no problem!
