Rest is after you cross the last timing mat (when I’ve thought of stopping on today’s run)


ultra running thoughts

been wanting to write about this, but keep on forgetting.  just some thoughts in my head while running an ultra.

  • a 50k ultra is not just a marathon + another 5miles or so. that extra 5miles hurts more.
  • next time, go slow, really slow on the first (more than a) few miles.  if you think you can sustain the pace that you’re in now,  think again.



i started a runnning streak on july 1 and decided to end it yesterday.  it was a short-lived streak.  i decided to end it because (1) i felt like putting ‘quantity’ over ‘quality’ runs, (2) i am neglecting the other ‘legs’ of the sports i like to do – biking and swimming.  what i have decided now is to do something EVERYDAY.  this will be my new streak.
