Such a question requires a lot more smaller questions to answer.
- How long have you been running?
- Is it your 1st time to cover the distance?
- What about your weekly and monthly total mileage?
- What about your endurance?
Given your answer to the questions above, tackling and finishing the 102-km within the cut-off of 18-hours is a tough act to some, and an easy feat to others.
There’s just so much to check when running this challenging distance:
- You need a strategy. An attack plan. A racing plan that focuses mainly on you not getting dehydrated, not getting dizzy, not getting weak, not getting a nasty cramp and not getting a body shutdown. You’re already smart. You can read between the lines. Think how you have handled your firsts: 5k, 10K, 21K, 42K, 50K, 60K, 70K, 80K.
- You need to believe you can do it based on the racing plan you created. Quitting is your last option only when unwanted things happen. Always be smart to decide if the race is already threathening your life.
Anyways, this post is for me. 🙂 Hahahahaha…
Remember, nothing is too hard to the prepared…and nothing is puzzling to the one who knows what they are doing.
Give the glory back to God – for it is what He deserve.
I hope to see the smiling faces of my friends once more. The thrill is something you cherish forever.
