Distance today: 30.0 km (Accumulated: 24734.0 km)
Country: USA

2005.08.30. Duck Pond Road> - "Bycarus">. State: Ohio.

30km, 2:54:57h. Excl. food, water, road-finding, toilet etc. stops

Start: 08:38am.
Finish: 12:06am.
Time GMT - 6 hours

+20c, rain and light wind at start.
20c and same at finish.

- A pretty hard stage!

Despite the much amputated distances I cover by now the body is definitely
getting nearer to the limit of what can be done in one (long) run. Today?s
stage in the pleasantly cooling rain was no exception: it felt like the
last 3km of a marathon; only here it was all 30km from start to finish.

While struggling to keep a decent pace and negotiating with myself from
mile to mile about how far up the road the next overlookable goal should be
- run to the next side road, then next 10minutes etc.. - I count myself
very fortunate to have support on this last hard part of the total run.
Connie has been crewing for me for almost 10 days now and she does it with
an astounding level of perfection. Her occupation is physical trainer
where she amongst others advice marathon runners and for my part this means
that she takes care of every possible detail of the run, down to driving
through the next days stage after I have finished the run, in order to
measure exactly how far it is and plan the rest-stops ! Impressive :-)

Tomorrow we expect a fair bit of tuff weather as the remaining bits of the
tropical hurricane that hit the South of the States is making its way North
towards Ohio where I am running. If the downpour and wind gets extreme we
plan to cut tomorrows stage in half - but its important not to exactly wait
the weather out as I am certain I will have more of that coming once,
hopefully, in Ireland & U.K. in October. And it?s no good idea to start
making the weather an excuse for not running by now... :-)

PS: The last week I haven?t had internet access so the previous reports is
first posted today (and possibly tomorrow). Sorry about that!
