Unofficial 50km treadmill record by Flo Neuschwander

Florian Neuschwander on the quasar MCU6
19 Dec 2020
Last Saturday, 19. December 2020 Florian Neuschwander came along to do some treadmill training and a Zwift marathon on our quasar MCU6. Somehow the day turned out to be more than a simple run and Florian beat his personal best for 50km on the treadmill and - by the way - also set a new unofficial German and European record for 50km on a treadmill.
We'd also like to share his very personal perspective on the run:
Inofficial 50 km german record and personal best in 2:51:52 hours !

My plan today was to take part in the Zwift Marathon Race. After a quick 1 km warm up I started directly with 17,2 km/h (3:29 min./km). I felt pretty good and relaxed and I wanted to see how far I can go this 17,2 km/h. I passed the halfmarathon mark in 1:13:10 hours feeling really good and smooth ! I knew already that I wanted to go for a fast 50 km. My old best time (world record in February 2020 in 2:57:25 hours but broken already a couple of times) was in sight. After 30 km I still felt really fresh and quite relaxed ! I waited until 35 km and then I picked up the pace a bit. After 40 km I started to push and I passed the Marathon in 2:25:xx hours. The last 8 km I speeded up and the final kilometer was 3:01 minutes. In the end I came home with an Inofficial German record of 2:51:52 hours. Zwift showed me a 2:51:05, Garmin ans Strava nearly the same time. I ran on a exactly calibrated @hpcosmos treadmill. Got all the data from my run here and without the 1 km warm up I ran a 2:51:52 hours. So I will count this time now as my personal best ! I am really happy with my run today. Very good test !
I didn‘t expect that and I didn‘t plan that ! These are the best runs! Just lace your shoes and GO and let it FLOW !
