Ryan Wagner (right) and I conversing with our Governors during a 1 minute ‘old man shuffle’ interval late during the 2013 Sheyenne National Grasslands Ultra (END-SURE). We raced together through up to 18 inches of snow earning a tie for third place–finishing in a little over 8 hours (20 minutes behind the two leaders). I was training 2 hours a week at the time.
Feeling absolutely spent during the 2010 Abu Dhabi Adventure Challenge, a 6 day adventure race and one of the most competitive AR events in the world (due to the prize purse).
The results of the these 5 weeks of training was an 8th place finish in the Detroit Lakes triathlon.
This might be why we train, but it is not how to train. High in the mountains of Southern New Zealand.
