Another run in the gravel.. ;-)
My adviser for the Canadian part of the run, Kevin Thompson, has
researched the conditions of the road ahead and it looks like similar
?gravel days' are ahead until Toronto. As it?s considerably harder to run
and push the stroller through gravel I am working on an alternative
schedule with 40km/day for that 2000km stretch. This will mean approximate
2 weeks delay in the overall plan, but due to the exhaustion and
near-injuries that has been a major concern lately, I think it will be
sensible to adjust the schedule properly. After all, I am not as fresh as
in the first 10 000km of the run...
As those that has been following the run know, there has been other long
stretches of difficult road conditions before - mainly the 3000km's of
highland gravel roads in East Siberia (that was quite a challenge :-) -
but the essential difference is that I at those parts of the run had
support teams which meant that I didn?t have to push the stroller on top
of the running. Actually I suspect that the unusual high degree of "near
limit" fatigue lately is caused by the long stretch of pushing the 35 -
40kg extra weight, which else way has only been max. 1000km stretches
Though, the positive thing behind this is that I didn?t plan for teams, as
I hardly could expect I'd actually make it that far :-))
