Long run complete - 24 miles, my longest run ever - and I can once again breathe a sigh of relief and relax for another week until Wednesday comes around again. Ran 8 miles out on Sandy and 8 back, then 8 running back and forth from the start of Sandy to the base of the first real hills and back, with my car in the middle. Ate a Roctane Gu at 8 and 16 miles, took a couple of short breaks after 16 and 21 miles to get some water and Gatorade in me, sitting in my car with the AC on blast, just a couple of minutes; long enough to get my core temp and HR down, short enough to keep the legs loose. No bonk, felt like I timed taking in the Gu and fluid perfectly, maybe a little too much fluid though, nothing major however. Even without a bonk 24 miles alone is damn hard mentally. physically though it's a piece of cake hahahahaha I am in pain

Sweet long run, man. Good to see you have the fluids and Gu timing dialed in. Strong work!

Congrats on your first 24-mile run! I see now that you're planning on logging some marathons outside of races. That is quite a goal!

Awesome job Eugene! Solo long runs are a love/hate relation. Hard mentally, yet it gets easier as you get used to that grind feeling! Earlier this past winter I did a 23.5 mile long run on the treadmill. Hard to explain how I felt after that lol! Also are you coming to Utah anytime soon?

I have never ever run that far before, but here in Japan they say that at about 30K (18 miles or so) it is like hitting a brick wall and the body just starts resisting. Did you experience that?

thanks Tom, Donald, and Kenny!

Kenny - I'd like to come up but money's tight right now, a couple of girls way out of my league when I was in high school have been hitting my line so I'm def trying to get up there sometime soon though haha. Hope you can keep up with me and my crazy mileage :)

Eva - It was definitely harder the last few miles, but no, since I did well with fluid and calorie intake during. I didn't do that at all last week though and at around 17 my body was running on fumes those last 5 miles.
