Robert ran 54.3 miles midnight to midnight ET 6/13 (3.5mi over estimate at 1:15pm PT).
Last 7 days: 71.2, 48.3, 43.9, 39.9, 41.3, 48.6, 54.3.
What a joke. He supposedly did 70 mile average for 3 weeks and then he got "tired" when somebody is watching?
But at least he did 54 miles under supervision that might be his new real PB in 24 hours.
Is there a day by day breakdown on mileage, time running and pace?[/quote]
For better or worse--and nobody wants to hear this--it's entirely consistent with reality that somebody as impulsive as Young could go out like gangbusters, hold it for a few weeks, and then slow. That's exactly what happened in the Bunion Derby. Young may have been blindsided by the weather in America, which, in June, ain't exactly the British Isles.
I'm just saying. Sometimes people DO start out too fast and then slow down. It's been known to happen to honest people.
