About as close to DFL as I care to be
« on: August 16, 2009, 01:02:01 PM »
No results yet but I was pretty close to DFL in the Fools Gold 50.  Could be the 45 minutes or so I spent puking on the top of bare hare (?).  I almost called it a day but decided to push on.  Had a second bout of nausea about 2 miles from the finish that cost me some additional time but the guys finishing the 100 were kind enough to spur me on :P :o

DFL is better than doing good with coaching and HRm's
