World Run I / Reports
Distance today: 29.0 km (Accumulated: 23484.0 km)
29km, 3:06:42h. Excl. food, water, road-finding, toilet etc. stops
Time GMT - 7 hours
+27c, clear and medium wind at start.
34c, v. humid and same at finish.
Again a very hot and humid stage where the general fatigue made the heat
quite a struggle.
After the finish point I ran 5km down to Hastings where I am staying, as
there wasn?t any accommodation nearby in the direction I am heading.
Those last 5km proved to be about the closest I have been to the limit.
There were a couple of near-blackouts and a bit of stomach illness in the
hours after the finish. Pushing 30-40km in this heat is obviously more
than I have energy for at this last stretch of the total run!
Fortunately there are appearing people which are ready to help w. crewing,
and even from the next stage I will have a crew, Debbie, who will take
care of the luggage and the health of this tired runner..
It is clear that without that kind of help there would be little chance
that I could get through the last 10% of the run!
After 3 rest days here in Hastings to make sure my crew has a healthy
runner to work with, we will continue the run on Monday :-)
