Thanks guys. I always recommend pushing ones limits... but this one might have been a bit too far even for me.

Nope, it was a reference to the topic rehash we keep running into.

Honestly not much difference between preparation for my normal race season. I typically log about 160 miles per week throughout 5 days with two rest days as bookends. I include at least one set of AT intervals immediately after a rest day and I try to fit in a few sets of anaerobic jumps after the second rest day. I'll adjust the schedule depending on which races I'm doing on the weekends. If no races scheduled, then I add in long endurance miles on weekends.

Nutrition and calorie intake are bigger factors IMHO. Finding that balance between what you can tolerate for 10+ hours with what your body responds well to is the most difficult piece of the puzzle. For me, it was honey stinger waffles, fig "Newman's", Honey Stinger chews and Tailwind nutrition in the camelbak. Figure that you can ingest and absorb approximately 1/3 of the calories you're burning and add or subtract as the day progresses. After my derailleur incident, I drastically cut back on calorie intake since I was relegated to spinning at a 6mph max speed. Had I been able to keep going as before, I would have had much less food left over at the end.

That was a good read Ridge. Thanks for taking time out to share that. Takes a sack to keep pressing on in those conditions.

Set up for a 0400 2 hour bike 7 mile run brick workout.

0400 sucks. Sucks bad.

yeah, you'd want to run some pretty fat tires and keep them well inflated.
