Running a 100 Miler on Low-Mileage Training

[This is a repeat of my post of 13 April 2010.  I am rerunning it since Umstead registration for 2011 just closed]

I am proof that you don't have to run mega-mileage to be able to complete a 100 miler.

On 27 March 2010 I ran, and ran well, the Umstead 100 Mile Endurance Run as a 58 year old, placing 56th of 133 finishers in 22:35.

Bear with me, but here is the detail that some of you may want. If you wish, I can email you my Excel running log spreadsheet that's a bit easier of a display, at MisterTristanBlog@gmail.com

NOTE: This post will consist of the raw data...I'll provide some analysis and context in Wednesday's post.
