After listing in to some of the interviews Mike Cameron did, it looks like that Dave has some mental adjustments to do. Putting his unrealistic daily mileages away and think about what he can actually do on a daily basis. Multiday runs like this one are about finding the balance of getting enough miles in each day but also enough rest to continue the next day.
Now since he seem to have shin splints it's a lot more painful to do. Not impossible but really hard.
I really hope he continues, even if it will take him 80 days which would be still a huge accomplishment.
Me too, don't care about the record, just hope he adjusts and continues. Like to see him at the Atlantic Ocean.
