2. I watched an interview with champion desert runner Ryan Sandes last night. He said he runs 20 hours per week; 14 hours on trails and 6 on the road to keep his speed up. He also spends many hours in the gym. He also said after a multiday desert race he spends two weeks just resting and eating. He carries 2000 calories of energy supplements with him on a day, but burns 5000 to 6000 calories per day.
3. On my run this morning I got a beautiful view of the ISS as it moved passed Orion’s Belt. I wondered how many other people were able to see this. I’m sure when I’m out running between 4 and 6 AM I’m often the only one to see and experience certain things.
