Two more nights of sleep, and at least another day, is the BIG Day – The 33rd Milo Marathon Manila Elimination.
Going directly to the point, how the hell would you guys do it? Any strategy? HOW?
There’s no question in the preparation. I believe everybody’s excited over this. The long hours of morning and night running, in the rain, in the shine, proved all that.
As for me, here’s my plan – something I intend to keep. I would need exactly 300 minutes to run and cross the finish line. That’s a lot of time…of hard running.
1st 10 kms, in 70 minutes,
2nd 10 kms, in 63 minutes,
3rd 10 kms, in 70 minutes,
4th 10 kms, broken in two:
1st 5kms, in 40 minutes
2nd 5kms, in 35 minutes
This leaves me with just 22 minutes to cut-off time, but 2kms left to run.
Hmmmmmmmmm…to push or not to push.
Should I run like hell and pace to exhaustion, or just pace non-chalantly to the Finish Line. Hmmmm…This is interesting. I wonder what time will I finish.
22 allowable minutes for 2 remaining kilometers. To maximize? To minimize?
Lots of questions…Lots of things in mind.
I wonder what’s the answer.
