Ben Brady:
Bro really went from not posting on his AP to giving an FBI-level analysis of his race.

Best self analysis I have ever seen. We’ll find those 5 minutes once we see the GPS file. Sounds like a well executed race plan to me. You made some great points and had great insights into visibility as it relates to route selection as well as climb considerations. Sounds like you are totally aware of your risks out there. Maybe just need to start looking for those opportunities now? I mean if you’re just handing the ball off every play but you’re getting 4 yards a play, you might be inclined to never stop running that play. But sometimes you gotta throw a go-route if the defense is giving it to you, even if you might get sacked.

I appreciate the kind words and football analogy, I’m looking forward to doing some analysis

Ah, that was football. Not conversant in that language.
ha ha

I'd call it CIA-level myself.

It took you longer to write up your race than it was to actually run your race, lol.

The best piece of advice I've been the long legs hard....really hard. That's where the time's found.

Yeah Patrick too true lol. And okay thanks Danny I'll keep that in mind going into the future. The only problem is I've always had a bad habit of outrunning my navigation so it's a thin line for me.

Nice notes. I bet you’ll find something in course review. I’m hoping to do an all-MLK event online review next weekend for YDP, watch for that email.

A wondering: what do you think your difference in pace is when you’re reading / planning vs when you have a good mental picture and are heads-up running?

Okay thank you I will be looking out for the email. As for your question I think it depends on terrain type, if its urban and good footing I think I might lose 2% speed, in a forest race maybe closer to 4%. Although if you are really curious I believe there is some way that using quick-route and the data from your watches accelerometer you can see how many times you flipped over your map and where on the course. I don't know much past that, John Brady is the one who told me about it though.

Nice writeup. My two cents would be that those five minutes are both easy and hard to find depending how you want to look at it. There's no "easy" button, but there's also no reason it can't be done and nothing special you have to do. Just keep working on your fitness and your nav technique and ability, and if you consistently do the right things, at your age the improvement will come organically over time as you gain experience and skill.

Incidentally it looks like you had a nice run in the Sunday race, MP notwithstanding. You were in the lead for a big chunk, and would have been just behind Ben. And you won some splits each day. Lots of positives to take away.
