RE: Robert Young fakes run across America
[quote="laz"]his credentials do not support the mile times he is claiming."
it did not take me long to figure out that "race" does not mean the same thing to RY as it does to me.
I need no further convincing that RY does not give his best effort in races.
not because he "chokes" under pressure,
but because he simply does not care.
his race results have no relationship to what he might be able to run.
we clocked him in some miles this morning, after he loosened up.
they ranged from 5:47 to 6:12.
coordinating with case, those were showing up on the tracker as 7:00 and up.
I am sure that was because he stopped at his van after every one.
not for long, but it does not take long to make the average time go up.
tracker undoubtedly did not put the same endpoints as he began and ended his running segments.
the most "6 minute" miles in a row was 4,
which is far short of the numbers strung together earlier.
but he is capable of running 6 minute miles without blowing up[/quote]
He's a decently fit man in his early thirties, I'd fully expect him to be able to run a few six minute miles.
BUT HE CLAIMS A 30:47 10k AND 67/68 HALF MARATHON.
The act of not caring about races is preposterous disingenuousness. His identity is wrapped up in being recognised for being a Super Special and if he actually showed some balls and trained to his limit for a couple of years and ran, I don't know, a 2:25 marathon, he'd still be demonstrably 20+ mins behind the best guys. Make up your own silly challenges and you can be Super Special and a Hero.
