Can someone enlighten me on RY's experience running multiple 50 mile days in a row, before this record attempt. It seems to me his experience has only been daily 26-30 mile runs.
He's run 147 miles in 48 hours on a TM. (Dean did that in 24 hrs, for comparison.) He claims to have run 373 mile no sleep non-stop and CoachKev and ARealPersson were supposedly there for the last 80 or so miles of that. And he probably did multiple 26-mile days in a row, but who really knows how many and how well. So we're all not sure how he will hold up for 2 weeks attempt 50-60 miles a day. The race across usa was basically 26 miles a day for 6 days in a row, then a rest day. Repeat. And there are some questions about his performance there because there are reports that each morning he would sprint off like a bat out of hell at sub-6 pace and get to the first two aid stations (6.6 and 13.1 miles) before they were staffed, and then jog/walk into the finish with a smile on his face. He finished the last stage in Washington DC before they had the finish line set up.[/quote]
lol now you are criticising the fact he won the race across america with hear say
He wont it, that is all that matters.
