Rob managed to do the 20 miles From Effingham to Greenup in about 4hrs. That's a cool 5mph, well above his average of the last few days.
First 9 miles was in 30 min though.
No one knows why tho.[/quote]
It's not uncommon to throw down up to 9 miles of strides before starting a 3000 mile long run.
It apparently primes the neuromusular system for the run, but unfortunately also appears to shut down all other high level functions of the brain, including those of your whole crew.
