100 km de Millau

By Lambda

J'aurais aimé dire "ça, c'est fait", mais ce n'est pas tout à fait exact.

Côté sportif, l'objectif n'est pas rempli puisque j'ai abandonné à 72 km, mais je suis malgré tout très satisfait.
Ma plus longue distance courue passe de 50 à 72 km, et je n'ai eu aucun souci de frottement ni d'échauffement, ni gastrique, ni au niveau de la plante des pieds.
C'est au niveau musculaire que ça a été la bérézina.
J'ai marché plus que prévu dans le long faux plat montant à partir du 56e, puis 10 km plus loin au début de la descente vers St-Affrique les muscles des jambes ont jeté l'éponge les uns après les autres.
Arrivé en bas, à l'allure flamboyante de 3,5 km/h, même les lombaires commençaient à être douloureux à force de compenser les quadriceps défaillants.
J'ai fait un détour par les tables de massage, ce qui a apporté un léger mieux mais n'a pas fait de miracle.
Et quand j'ai été pris...

Save the BRS Fundraiser

The Site is in Major Need of Your Immediate Help!

The site is old, outdated, broken, and at risk. Due to the havoc Covid has taken on our lives and bank accounts, we are way behind in raising funds (2016 was our last) to keep the site going...but, as far as I'm concerned, the BRS takes a back seat when it comes to people's health and livelihoods which are always most important.

But it's time. The site is nearing critical condition and needs to be upgraded both in terms of its platform/OS software, along with some of its modules, and the server it sits on (an old coot that will soon be retired, I'm sure).

If we are not able to raise the amounts needed in a timely manner (meaning before she croaks), then it's very possible that after 13 years, we may need to just shut her down. She's had a nice, long run after all....

American ultrarunner completes barefoot trek of
California's John Muir Trail

Canadian Running Magazine

New York-based ultrarunner Kenneth Posner completed a 22-day trek along California’s 210-mile (337K) John Muir Trail (JMT) on Saturday. While Posner didn’t run the route, he is an avid trail runner and ultrarunner, and he almost exclusively runs barefoot. He didn’t take to the JMT to break any official records (the various fastest known time records for the JMT hover around two to four days), but rather for a personal challenge: to hike the entire trail without shoes.
