Do we know exactly when the video was taken? If we triangulate that with the RV GPS I am positive what we'll see next is a 50+ mile drive. You can tell he was trying really hard in that video to look strong and fit. I guess another explanation is the espresso flowing through his veins.
A new video on Robert Young's facebook page shows how he runs. I have to say it looks impressive.
If you have seen Wolfgang Schwerk and Joe Fejes running in Hungary this year, this is something else. Two of the best multiday ultrarunners in the world.
Or in more plain words, it looks totally unbelievable. There is no way that somebody would run that way after 2000 miles with 70mile/day days.
Can any experienced ultra guys comment on how one should look at this stage? To my untrained eye he looks like an average joe who is hot and tired and starting to break down (seems to have a bit of a hitch in his stride). Also, seems odd to be checking out one's watch so often when on such a long trek.
