Regarding the Strava data:
[quote] The Elapsed Time is longer than the running time hence breaks during the run, something "Lazarus Lake" of the Barkley marathon saw for himself. This means my actual running (moving) time is different than my actual Elapsed Time (overall time), the link you also show is a 3000ft decent (downhill running) during that period.
Is this a new excuse? Can anyone with more knowledge of the Strava data critique this? My understanding was that while there are breaks recorded in the data, Strava also captures segments of continuous efforts.[/quote]
I feel like I'm falling into his trap by even responding to these fairy tales with anything more detailed than a "haha, what bullshit!", but here is the speed-vs.-time graph of that run, which is the way to show any and all breaks that he took (generated by GoldenCheetah software from a download of the GPX data from his Strava account):
It shows the first 13.7 miles were covered without a break (and without a single drop to walking speed) in 1h17m (5:24 min/mile). Then the final 11.9 miles were similarly covered without a break or drop to walking speed, in 1h08m (5:43 min/mile). One break in the middle of 15 minutes.
