Saturday "Last Ditch" HURT Training 12-18-10

Aloha Athletes !

Well boys and girls there's something like 4 weeks from this Saturday until the running of the 11th annual HURT 100 Mile Trail Endurance Run, so THIS WEEKEND should be about your last shot at a long training run. Some people say "aw, a couple of HURT loops should do it", but I say more. Granted, unless you are single, or have a very supportive spouse, the Holidays can be a challenging time to get out for a tough, 50 mile training run, but in my opinion, now's the time for it, and that's what you really need ! So, the plan is to meet at the Nature Center at 6:00 am, which just happens to be the exact starting time for the race, and go do as much as you can. Suggestion: Try to emulate your pace for the race and just go for as long as you have time for (or energy for) and see where it takes you....a minimum of 40...but 50 would be better. Also, start with the lighting and food/drink that you plan to use for the race. Get serious ! If you are smart, this will be your last weekend to go long, so take full advantage of it !. So, go out and have fun.  Don

I am headed out tonight for a couple loops as soon as I get off work. Maybe looking for company starting out from the NC.


Paul, how fast are you planning to do your loops? Can you call me at four seven nine zero seven four nine to discuss? I'd like to get out tonight. Thanks.

Can anyone coming from East side of town give me a ride from home or from bottom of my hill (Waialae and 16th). If so, e-mail kaiser at hawaii dot edu or text/call me on 520 3680. Mahalo.

Heading out Friday night around 7pm from JG, if anyone wants to start on the Pali side. See all out there.


I have Clip and Succeed Tabs if anyone needs,,,just let me know..


Jackass stash is well stocked. Water at Tree trunk path/sign on right off of Road 30 yards from fence trail gate at manoa. Will drop another stash under water tank behind restroom at Nature. Holoholo no'eau!


I'm thinking about a 'Sissy Sixty' starting on Friday night (1 night, 2 day loops) 7+ hour loops, going out about 10:00PM or so. My goal is a 22 or so--depends on my knees of course and if the weather holds...which is doubtful as the rains are off to the west. Likely a Manoa Start for security purposes. Shoot me a line @ mmuench01 on GeeMail if you are interested. I'll be dropping the cans and some water at all the usual spots. Aloha. mikem

Everything you said is right on, and each detail made more thankful that I am not in HURT this year! (: I'll get the bug again some day, I'm sure, but for now I'm going to relish fattening myself up over the holidays... (:
