I just read a very good insightful post of Joey's on finishing a 100 mile. This quote matches something I have thought for quite some time:
"A lot of folks go into a 100 setting themselves up for failure. If you enter a race with the possibility that you might not make it then you probably won't. If you think that you get a certain distance or place in the event and you might drop there, then you will drop."
Mind over matter people!! If you don't think you can do it, you probably won't.
Another good website about 1st 100s: here; I have read his page more than one time.
This is another great post,by John Morelock.
I did one hour on the treadmill today. I mixed up jogging with walking, cranking the incline up to 5 or 6% for the walking. I am looking forward to a 13-15 mile trail run at Mohican on Sunday. We're back to winter weather again here in Ohio:
"Rain and snow showers in the morning. The rain and snow will change to rain showers in the afternoon. High 43F. Winds N at 20 to 30 mph. Chance of precip 60%."
Winds 20 to 30 MPH???
