(EN) Yes, they can. I was surprised as well, but after realizing my dream of finishing the Two Oceans Ultra with 56 km/34.8 miles) in sub 5 hours and getting a Sainsbury Medal, some tears were rolling down my cheek. I was so overwhelmed that I made it and was capable of keeping a 5:15 min/km (8:26 min/mile) pace for 56 km, that the tension fell off after the finish. For the last 10 km I had to handle a cramp of my right adductors, so I had to run very carefully...
It's so fantastic to see the hundrets of kilometers of training pay off.
More details will be written soon.
My unofficial time: 4:54:00
