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: 30.0 km (Accumulated: 33653.0 km)
Elapsed time: 02:31:47
Start 09:55am., 17c, overcast & light wind, at p-box "687 Shelton" on Hwy.49 in Roxboro. Finish 12:34, 17c & same, at house number 578 on Hwy.49 (please see gps-map for exact location of finish point).
As an exception a little bit faster stage today. Ofcourse "fast" depends on what kind of runner you are !
The two and a half hour it took today to run 30km was a pace of about 5min./km where I usually keep a slower 5:30 to 6min/km. However to an super-recreational runner or beginning elite-runner - that kind of time is what you should have on marathon, not on 30km ;-)
And if we are talking proper elite runners, then two and a half hour would have them showered, changed and on their way home including running a marathon.. On the other hand; for a recreational runner the time would give about 20 or 25km's of running. So, I sit somewhere betwen those extremes. But I do remember how it fealt to run below 2:30 on a marathon... more than a decade ago :-)
The most important thing in relation to the present world run is that its a sign that the legs are picking up strength after more than a month where I barely jogged from one tired stage to the next. Hopefully this is an indication that there are better stages ahead and more energy in the legs :-)
