I, for one am feeling the effects of getting older. Although I have not quite hit 50 yet, I am finding that my max time in the seat is about 10-12 hours and then I need at least 6-8 hours off to recover. I can then hit it for another 10-12 hours.

This is a far cry from when in my 20's I could pound out 48 hours straight with no problem.

personally I like the NAQP contests and contests that run 30 or more hours with a 24-36 hour max op time. At least I can get some rest in the middle.
