    3:58:05 net time 3:54:49

    question for normal runners... is net time the time the championchip registers??

    ... happy with result was thinking I would do 4:15-4:30


    Category MSR
    Overall place 3076 / 6443
    Category place 563 / 1034
    Speed 10,782 Km/Hour
    Gross time 3:58:05
    Net time 3:54:49

    Net split times (difference)
    5 Kilometer 28:36 (28:36)
    10 Kilometer 56:00 (27:24)
    15 Kilometer 1:23:35 (27:35)
    20 Kilometer 1:50:50 (27:15)
    Half marathon 1:57:18
    25 Kilometer 2:18:45 (27:55)
    30 Kilometer 2:47:25 (28:40)
    35 Kilometer 3:16:07 (28:42)
    40 Kilometer 3:43:54 (27:47)



    Lessons learned:
    1) I HATE carbs and carb loading
    2) There are many lazy mofos in the world who dont appreciate life, and convienences such as cars, elevators etc.... unless you absolutely need them dont use them... leave it for the crippled

    So anyways saturday was carb loading day, ate loats of apples, yogurt, oat bran, and finally, all you can eat sushi!!!

    The morning meal consisted of my typical pre run meal... bar of pure dark chocolate and 2 coffees ( aka diarehha hell from previous runs, but I timed it well not to have that) .. the dark chocolate I learned from a cross country runenr friend, as it prevents lactic acid build up due to the magniesium in it. (So many people think mariuz pudzianowski's diet of chocolate is BS, it actually may have truth)

    While waiting at the gates, chowed down some dried apricots, and then during the run drank 2 sugar free redbulls, ate a few dates at 20k point, then drank the sports drinks provided by marathon.

    I probably could have had a better time if it wasnt for many slow people in front... at some points which also happened to me, people where punching each other as the room was tight. On my nokia sports tracker I logged 44.5km prob thanks to all the zig zagging thru the crowd of slower peeps.

    Anyways, im prob never doing this again, damn carb loading makes you feel like a pregnant women with 9 kids. But I did prove a point to myself with proper nutrition there is not much muscle /strength loss... with out straps or chalk i can pull 2x my bw 3x or so at the moment, 2.25 for 1 ... squat wouldnt know since i dont have a good rack and spotter, bench same)

    Now, time for my reward, off to brazilian all you can eat meat buffet, then off to Dubai in 4 days :x:

    Pics hopefully soon.

    Also another thing, I wore too much clothes, I had an extra sweater I had to ditch at the 15km point cause I was over heating pretty bad

    good shit bro, how did the last 6 miles feel?

    From what I remember, the championchip registers the actual time it took you to complete the marathon, which is the net time.

    actually had more energy towards the end of the run, as i properly paced myself at the start, the runners high hit so hard especially that i saw i had a chance to finish in under 4 hours.

    as for hair comments, i kept growing it long just for this, hockey / baseball player thing during playoffs till the championship is won

    I still suggest you follow my advice and immediately jog to a barber, though.
