Sprinting and pacing

In our 20’s we tend to sprint everywhere we go.

We sprint to get to work.

We sprint while at work.

We sprint to get back home.

We sprint while at home.

We even sprint in our sleep.

How many of us actually get 6-8 hours of sleep each night?

The Wasatch 100 mile endurance run finished last month in Salt Lake City. You can review the results of those who completed the race here.

Out of the 313 runners that started, 203 completed the race.

What was the average runner’s age to finish this year?

42.

There were only 9 runners under the age of 30 that finished the race.

The occasional sprint now and then to hit a deadline is a useful skill to have but most winners pace themselves. Our endurance increases with time. Our careers need to do the same thing.
