Tuesday 5/26
0800 wakeup, feet pretty painful here and the log is no longer maintained.
ate grits, coffee, out the door by 0900, I think i did this lap with Joel in 6:30, the bottom of the 11th.

First 10.5 loops went to plan.  For the most part. Due to excruciating foot pain due to swelling and not having bigger shoes, I didn't discipline myself to get up at the proper time on the 26th, so I'm now 4 hours behind for the day.  The loops continued to be slow as shit.  I am not sure if I bummed shoes late this afternoon of the 26th or if it was on the 27th, which was day 7. Either way, I think I ended with 15.5 loops. So 403 miles or thereabouts.As you can see, my plan was to ensure that I slept at least 4 hours per night or more.  To complete 2 loops per day, and find two days, not back to back to do 2.5 loops. With rest the most important aspect of my plan. Sleep hours each night were around 5, 6:45, 2, 5, and 7 hours.  I wanted to have my sleep time during my regular times of sleep which ranges from typically 2300 to 0500. This was my first time attempting a multii-day and I was derailed by what I consider a rookie mistake of not having a larger sized shoe.  The swelling really did a number on me. Hopefully this information can help you plan your daily day to day. See you next year.
