Leg 17 of Wasatch Back Relay. I had a rough night leading up to my second leg. I had the runs bigtime and my stomach was not being kind to me. I had to use the potty at five exchanges in a row before my run. By the time I started running my stomach was really upset and I had sideaches and stomach cramps less than a mile in. Again, the knee hurt in the first mile and then went away. Usually my night runs are great at Ragnar, but this was easily my weakest effort this year. Time was 23:26 for 4.22 miles. Elevation was 133 gain and 18 loss according to my garmin. Splits were: 5:34 5:25 5:40 5:35 and 5:18 pace for final .22
Leg 29 of Wasatch Back Relay. The knee hurt pretty bad now before I even started. The stomach was still churning and I was now up to 12 stops to the potty in like 13-14 hours. The knee killed the first mile and only hurt the rest of the way on this one. I will have to cross train for most of next week and get this knee to heal. Distance was 2.88 miles with a slight downhill. Splits were 5:15 5:08 and 5:21 pace for last .88. Total time was 15:05.
Overall I think we took second place with a team time of 19:49:xx for 197.5 miles or a 6:01 average I think. Total sleep was one hour almost exactly...not bad!
My teammates were Ken Richardson, Jed Johanson, Bret Ferrier, Trent Hooper, Ben Van Beekum, Kevin Dickey, Braden Perry, Bryant Jensen, Brett Lechtenberg, Steve Shepherd, and Trevor Ricks.
