45km, 4:54:06h. Excl. food, water, road-finding, toilet etc. stops.

+39c, a few clouds and heavy wind at start.

- The heat returns!
As you can see from the temperatures the heat is certainly returning. We
have got reports that some of the Roadhouses up along the course reached
45-47c during midday. At Madura we enjoyed about 41c. So it makes sense to
keep the running to afternoon and night :-)
Yet, as it?s a very dry heat like in any other desert (I have some seasons
trained in Sahara/ Middle Egypt for heat-adaptation), its actually not as
bad as you could expect. My personal opinion is that the June - July
months in Middle Siberia with high humidity and around 30 - 35c was by far
more difficult to feel comfortable in; not mentioning running in ;-) But
that might be just as much due to the heaps of biting insects which are
much fewer out here!
