Tomorrow, 7AM...... begins my 12 hours of SCY joy. Although 99% of those who said they would join me have since come up with better plans, I think I might have some company for a few hours.

I mixed up my MAXIM tonight.... 2 gallons worth. My feeding plan is 5 oz of said mixture (flavored with some welch's frozen fruit concentrate) every 15 minutes + one endurolyte capsule every hour.

I've decided to break the 45,000 yds into the following sets:
10x100 @ 1:30
10x200 @ 3:00
10X300 @ 4:30
10x400 @ 6:00
10X500 @ 7:30

15X1000 @ 15:00

10x500 @ 7:30
10x400 @ 6:00
10x300 @ 4:30
10x200 @ 3:00
10x100 @ 1:30

I'll break for 15 min every 4 hours.
I'd like to think I could trim the intervals a bunch, but I think its better to play it safe (and keep it steady)

....this time tomorrow, I'll be sleeping.

    I didn't think you were serious!
    Where are you doing this? by yourself?
    Are you taking toilet breaks only every 4 hours? What are you wearing? you'll need 2 suits because one will dissolve. Are you taking coffee?
    Holy Crap! Good luck!! I hope you get photos. I'll never complain about my 6 hr SCY solos again.

    Happy Birthday!
