Been following the Proctor run.
Strong first day and second day.
Past several days, bonked around mile 40.
Today, he started almost a mile farther down the road from where
he finished the day before. I took screenshots.
He started fast (for a man trying to cross Canada - 5,000 miles) 8:30 a mile up a 1,500 climb.
You pay for starts like that. At mile 30, he started to pay. He clocked a 17 minute mile, then a 12, and a 15,
then the tracker magically went haywire. His dot stopped moving. The mileage continued to steadily increase, but the
pace stayed at EXACTLY 10:10 per mile for the next three hours. At mile 43, his dot reappears. Mile 43 is logged at 8:32 or something close. Garmin shows a straight (couldn't be straighter with a ruler) line across the mountains where there are no roads.
Day 6: miles - miles - 46:55- running time - 8 hours 47 minutes - Pace - 11:20 - climb 1,560 ft
Day 7: miles - 43:44 - running time 8 hours 51 minutes - Pace - 12:13 climb 2,083 ft
Day 8 (today): so far - miles 61.69 - running time -10 hours 46 minutes - Pace - 10:27 - climb 3,073 ft
May be reasons for this, but I've written about two ultrarunners and I can't think what they might be
