Spiders & technicalities..
If I was eager to help the turtle across the tarmac yesterday (but too late !!) then todays run posed more of a dilemma:
After around 15km of running there was a huge spider crawling about on the road - and if I wanted to help the turtle then I should try to save the spider as well.
Not so easy as I am HUGELY afraid of spiders of Any size and ceartainly of a 'Kingpin' thisbulky.. [see pic.].
Luckily the dilemma solved itself as she walked off' the tarmac; probably embarrased by her grose features that were only too visible: finger-thick hairy legs, too many eyes to count and (the horror!) a pair of fangs big enough for "teenage piercing" ;-))
Apart from this jolly encounter, sure to wreck my sleep for the next couple of nights, then the day went by peacefully; saw a few vultures hovering over my track and found a nice campspot after the run.
Nb.: I noticed that the gps-track from 2days ago isnt proper: The endomondo system recorded the first 14km and the last 13km of the stage, but the space inbetveen it hasnt tracked ! It seems that on days w. v. high uv & heat this ocattionally happens - though I usually see it quickly and restart the sys. within a few hundred meters. Ill upload the independently gps-coded pic for that streatch asap for full documentation !
