wire lube it was invented for a reason. and laying conduit does not have to be so time consuming. buy conduit big enough to stick a ping-pong ball in. Tie a string through a small hole in the ball and blow the ball through the conduit with compressed air tie the end of your string to your pulling rope and lube the rope with wire pulling lube it will keep you from burning 90's. pull your rope through and then be sure to tape the heck out of the wire to rope connection. Invite buddies over and offer beer in barn, they'll pitch in... I think. Don't use a come along. this stretchs the wire and can damage insulation resulting in shorts like mentioned in other reply. Oh yeah wire lube is available at any electrical supply, get a big tub and spread liberally on cable as feeding it into the conduit.
