I sometimes read this race advice: Focus on maintaining the same level of EFFORT throughout a race. The context may be: Don't focus on pace (time) per mile.
The idea seems ok but:
1. I don't know what my ideal consistent level of effort would be (especially for Pikes Peak), &
2. At any point of the race, I don't know whether I am putting forth that level of effort.
Is anyone able to take that advice and act on it? Or is it the equivalent of "Try hard" and "Do your best?"
Thank you for all message board comments and for the race management maintaining the board for us.
