RE: Cross-Canada record attempt, 7200K - 66 days. Current record by Al Howie 72 days
Couple of questions for anyone in the know:
1. Why did Dave drop heart-rate stats after day one?
2. In the beginning of the run, the links to the Garmin tracking was still available
for days after the run. You could go back and see those. Why were they deleted? Why
are they now deleted post run? Don't understand the change.
3. July 1st - Why are there two David's that day on Strava?
4. Why does one say 40 miles and the other 53? Garmin showed 53.
5. Did Dave really average just over six minutes per mile from mile 40-53?
6. Why did he stop? His Strava shows a very smooth run - 53 miles at 8:08 pace. Most of us
would run forever if we could run like that.
7. Why after such a day, did he go onto Facebook and make like it had been a bad day and the
route needed rethinking, rest was needed, and he needed to listen to his body?
8. Can anyone explain the July 4th anomaly? Maybe not. It may have just been a quirk
in the streaming. Even so, this is an important day in the run so far, as he came back that day from
very low to very high mileage.
Since hitting the prairies, I don't see red flags, but orange ones - running so hard at the end of runs as if
it is a time-chipped race - stopping six miles short of destination, when you could walk and manage your
goal and a nice cool down to boot.
Anomalies can be explained. They happen. I see a guy running very hard. I agree on the course remarks, but that is
the nature of Guinness and what they do.
