Adventure Racing race (Wartrail Non-Stop) 10:47:00 [4] 58.0 km (11:09 / km) +2200m 9:23 / km
ahr:148 max:183 (sick) shoes: Salomon Sense Pro 5 Blue

Non-Stop Wartrail - 58km Mountain Run, 153km MTB, 62km River Paddle.

Raced with Mac and Tracey C. as Team Cyanosis.

We started at 07h10, expecting to run similar pace as 2016, a similar or slightly faster time on the bike, and thus arrive at the river about the 6.00am start.

I felt like crap already on the first uphill to the Towers. HR was sky-high and we had to slow down notably, being 5 mins off pace already by CP1. Weather was fair and not too hot, but the effects of illness and being on antibiotics took its toll. Navigated well, lost 3 mins going up the first climb, then no more mistakes for the rest, the trail becoming yet more runnable in general. Quite a few options for refilling on the course, particularly just after Snowdon, due to the recent heavy rains. We were chasing Jabberwock who started 5 mins ahead. Never saw them until a 10m time check at the stream after Snowdon. They'd just caught Tim & Petrus.

Just after CP3 was my only good section, where I felt decent for about 45 mins. Thereafter awful again, getting worse after Skiddaw. Ended up walking all the way in from Avoca. Realized I could start the bike either at this stage.

Came in about 1h behind latest plan. Whole team decided to stop and me and Tracey would do the paddle the next day after a good night's rest (Mac shoulder injury so already out of that).
