World Run II / Reports
The map shows the position of which the pictures for the day are taken (if any). The start and finish markers are placed at the first and last valid registered position. This is not nessesary the actual start and finish position, if GSM or GPS signals was not available.
Distance today: 42.0 km (Accumulated: 23614.9 km)
Elapsed time: 03:57:35
Start 08:51am, 23c, l. wind, rain. At Bl.&white rds. "km 1089" at road 2 to Neuquen. Finish 14:12pm, 39c, humid, allmost clear and no wind. At "Nuevo Cheo Hotel" in Villa Regina, on road 2 to Neuquen.
As mentioned yesterday, I was checking an irregularity w. the gps. It turned out to be quite a little technical riddle - which I havent fully found the solution to yet:
As part of my documentation of the run I use the Endomondo gps-tracking system, which logs & publicly displays each km of the daily run from start to finish, w. precise distance, total time, all km split-times and altitude profile as well as the geographical coordinates.
(This goes along w. the daily logbook of the run, the gps-coded pictures & Jamies video documentary).
However as I looked through the data after the 41km run yesterday, I immideately noticed that something was quite wrong:
From 26km to 31km it showed the following km-splits, in min/km:
.. 9:49min (5min stop while drinking water 1km normal pace) -
5:39 - 5:54 - 2:27 - 4:59 - 3:46 .. Followed by my lunch break.
While the rest is normal, the 3:46 split is unusually fast and the 2:27 is downright impossible !
It means a pace of 25km/hour for that km - which is simply Faster than I can run ! My fastest time ever on 1km is 2:59 (done 4days after I set my pb. on 100km, 6:58h., in 2000.). And while this is also a few days after my 100km stage, it just cant be possible. Yet the distance match the roadside km-markers !! ..
