World Run I / Reports
Distance today: 48.0 km (Accumulated: 14683.0 km)
48km, 5:01:25h (+/- 1 min.). Excl. food, water, road-finding, toilet etc.
Time GMT + 11 hours
+18c, half overcast and light wind at start.
27c and same at finish.
The hot weather is beginning to pick up as the Australian summer draws
This means that I am also getting my first "Nullabor training" for the
desert stages waiting between New Year and February.
- The first lesson was: Don?t get too confident!
At my start of today?s stage I had food and water enough for the stage
itself, but knew that I had to buy supplies for dinner and tomorrow.
Around midday I saw the first roadside store - I passed on as it was
closed for lunch break.
The next option was a city 7km before my finish town, but signs said that
the general store was 500m off the main road. No way! ;-)
There will probably be a shop nearby at finish..
Result: no shops at finish and thus a 40km stage tomorrow on my
backup-supplies (1l. water and 250g. sugar).
3. December tip:
- When speaking of food and energy intake: the most efficient time to
refill the energy stored in the muscular cells are the first 15 min. after
training / competition.
Scientific studies show that you both get the best refill of energy and
the fastest recovery.
- Bon appetite!
