A long stage considering the 'hangover' in the muscles & joints after
yesterdays cold "rain & gravel" extravaganza.
- The stage got spiced up by a road-incident..:
During a year long event like this it is most likely that there will be
some conflicts within the team; we wouldn?t be human if there wasn?t, I
Today I played a less than polite part in the daily extremes' of the road.
And after finish the was an hour long walk-back (literally & km-sign wise)
to mumble the required - but far more difficult than 61km: ".. sorry ".
The positive part was that while walking slowly back over the hillsides, I
realized that I probably haven?t given myself time to 'take in the
scenery' of Siberia - being full up with split-times, "injury watch",
"keep running", documentation, planning & re-planning, water & pace
strategy etc., etc., etc..
However embarrassing the walk was, it still was a last call to appreciate
Siberia while we still are here; there should be little more than 3 weeks
left to Vladi Vostock now!
