You are trying to bite off to much.
start out a little slower, select a shorter trail, 1.5 miles is too much in
one day.....you need to gradually build up to it......you could start out by
walking to the refrigerator whenever you get thirsty instead off

One clarification I'd like to make. The Barkley course won this year, not
me. There were no finishers. I was the only person to complete 4 loops and
the only person to start the 5th and final loop, so I beat all the humans,
but at Barkely, that's not the same thing as winning. Since 1986 there have
only been 6 finishers. I'm hoping to be the 7th. Maybe next year.
Boy, do I know how Brian feels when you put your all into an expedition.
Not knowing how it will turn out or even if you will survive. That is
exactly how I felt on the 1.5 mile PCT Warner Springs Loop expedition. I
shed a few tears, but I made it about 30 minutes behind my trail partners
back to the golf course snack bar. That includes my 300 yard hitchhike pick
up to the golf course parking lot.
Say, the doctor told me today that my knees were not too bad. Now I have to
get the leg muscles checked out and some blood work done. I should be ready
for my Yo-Yo-Yo of the PCT soon.
