      Imminent Catastrophe

        I'm in. My actual goal is 1502.7 for a PR (2007). I would amaze myself because that year I ran 15 Marathons/50k. With enough ice and Aleve it could happen!

        Boston Marathon 21 April 2014

        Tahoe Rim Trail 100M 19/20 July 2014

          Just about every time I've set a goal this year, I've fallen short.

           

          So, I'm going to try something different and say, right now, that I'm definitely probably not going to make it. Especially now that I've noticed that I have a cushy 11-mile lead to fritter away.

           

          MTA: Make that had a cushy 11-mile lead.

            Six weeks, 220 miles.  That works out to almost 37 a week, 6.9/day.  I'll be honest I don't see it happening. If I hadn't been a bonehead and tweaked my knee running too hard too soon after Chicago....

             

            We'll see how its going after Thanksgiving. If I can stay on plan through the holiday I may be close enough that I'll put in the extra effort and nip the bugger right at the line.

            Honolulu Marathon - 12/8/2013

              Now only 2.5 miles behind the Bunny and should pass him for good on Thursday. 

               

              With hoping to get 50 mpw next two weeks should build enough cushion to beat him to the line even with 2 week taper and 2 weeks of recovery to end the year after 12/12 marathon.

                Thanks for the push y'all!  I'm actually going to try to see if I can do it!

                  Been humping hard after the bunny since July and I finally tracked him down today!  Looks like Dunattar and Carl A. stuck with the pack on the blow by.

                   

                  Good News is I think I broke his will as when I flew by him today on my 18 mile LR, I saw the ears droop and don't think he has much left to fend off thos behind him ... Charge forward!

                              OK .... 31 days remain and caling the foolowing out to catch the Bunny.  150 - 180 miles are doable.

                               

                              Me ... Even with Marathon taper and recovery in december I think I am pretty confident I can get the 115 miles
