Not a whole lot to say about this other than it was really hot out which made it pretty difficult. Being beholden to the gong was challenging too. I think the way to go is to have everything packed and waiting for each lap so you can arrive with just a short break of five minutes or so and take things with you, maybe like a TDF feed bag. Eating on the run at that pace is not a problem. Eating in the TA became increasingly difficult. I enjoyed taking a seat and was able to think about what I wanted at the next break while running the loop, but as the pace slowed I became focussed on that and arrived in the TA with no plans.

Mark and Joany were invaluable in helping me be efficient and keeping me on the clock. That provided things I didn’t think of like salt pills (duh) and potato chips. Also, drinking half a maurten 320 was a lot easier than the whole thing. No nausea at all.

I’m pretty sure if I’d left for the 11th loop I’d have missed the cutoff and I was pretty not interested in that so, satisfied with my day, I stopped after ten. Nearly 68 kms by garmin. More than I’ve ever run before. And I’m not injured, my feet still look like feet, no blisters, so after a rest I can carry on with a respectable base.

Compression socks were awesome. Totally worth wearing even in the heat.

Thanks mark and Joany for making it all possible. It was fun.

Easy again to the pier. Hard to know what to do workout wise within a week of this mutant race. I think the old you can’t make your race the week before but you can definitely wreck it the week before is the best guide. Jury is out on whether or not enough training has happened. Maybe if I could have kept my pace up from May, but the last bit has been dodgy.

Calf is stiff af to start but starting slow is totally ok so not a problem, at least the first time. X 23 we gone see.

A significant part of me wants to order two twelve slice pizzas and eat a slice before each lap. Before I know it there will only be one slice left....
