World Run I / Reports
Distance today: 62.0 km (Accumulated: 4852.0 km)
Route Report: Detylin - Kyzarenko.
62km., 6:54h., (Kazuka and Jesper +21min.).
Again today our road was prolonged a bit from the shortest possible road.
But I begin to get an idea why!
Besides being an oil-rich region with many roadside pumps, it also has
some spots with big heavy-industry plants behind high fences.
Our all-day police escort now seems more keen than usual about where we
make food/drink/etc. stops.
As far as I understand this part of the route was off-limits before
The running was by the way some of the most taxing since "winter tent
days" in Europe.
We had +1C., hard rain and plenty of wind in open terrain - the worst kind
of conditions for this kind of running.
Hypertermia quick become a problem.
Kazuka and I struggled with it, while Alexander seemed untouched.
I lost feeling in the left foot (windside) after 3 hours and had problems
with finger and hand mobility same side.
While there are many enjoyable days, this was one of them where all you
can think about is a prayer that its soon over - which it wasn't.
