45km, 4:38:31h. Excl. food, water, road-finding, toilet etc. stops
Time GMT - 8 hours
+16c, almost clear and medium wind at start.
19c and same at finish.
Struggled a lot with the motivation today and wrestled the horizon.. ;-)
Fortunately the terrain grew more inspiring during the day, with some salt
lakes/salt processing plants at the last part.
Further I met a very interesting lady who is bicycling from Vancouver to
Winnipeg and who had some great thoughts and observations on doing these
kind of long distance events!
- Actually I picked up a useful mental tool/trick to beat this
'4000km-to-the-finish Blues' that I am struggling with these days :-)
All in all a day very rewarding despite its hard wrestling with distance
and the endless prairie horizon.. !
