Day 7, SuperMemo Ultramarathon
Day 7 has been a day with to much overload, external overload, I manage to complete 387 repetitions only. I felt like asking for the paramedics because my nails went of on the middle of the race.
Also, yesterday Ryan Hall made a great effort on the Boston Marathon, but this race got me distracted, and I didn’t catch up time lost at night.
Long distance races have in common that in order to be halfway trough the race you must have finished like 66% – 70% of the race. This ultra is no different, I’m feeling tired, and I’ve lost some ground on the planned reps per day. Anyway, today I ‘m going hard again and hopefully recover some ground.
Remainder for the day:
Study even if you think you won’t learn enough
People fail to predict that they will be able to remember more words after studying more – people base their prediction of how much they will learn on how much they remember now (e.a. on memory state before they study).
