Slow progress towards Mendoza..
VERY tired during the run today. Especially on the first half - as it is quitecommon for ultra/multidayrunners (we are Slow starters :-)
A bit puzzled as to why this tiredness ! The weather has been unusually easy w. near perfecttemperatures & the nighttemp. now goes below 20c so I can get full sleep during night. So I should be extra rested w. 8-9 good hours !
But as you cansee from the total time (starttime to finishtime) I was very slow, taking more than 5h. for this short stage; a lot of the time spend at the rest-stops - streatching & trying to troubleshoot the situation. Not spending much time eating; lack of appetite.
There is less than 600km to Mendoza and the beginning of the 4000m alt. pass linking across the Andes Mountains and into Chile.
