Preparations for the final stage :-)
There is now only two days untill the last, somewhat long, stage begins. When I re-measured it online last night I was a bit surprised (and concearned..) to find out that its not 170km but closer to 200km which will remain to be run on that final stage.
Wether it was that knowledge or just the many hills & strong headwind today, I dont know, but the legs for sure fealt heavy', even when considering the 70km run two days ago. Hopefully I will be able to cover the final distance without delays or obstacles from body or mind. In order to provide a fair amount of time to run the 200km's, I plan to start the final stage of world run two in the morning of the 27.th. and then push on' untill the outer cliffs of Cape Spear at St. John's should be reached around 2pm. the 28.th.
That means a run of 28-30hours. Not an overwhelmingly easy task with four continents 'in the legs'. But I think that it would be nice to finish a long run around the world with a long last day of running :-)
As you can see from the pictures we used the time after todays 40km stage to supply up for the finishing all-day-&-night run. In case you wonder what "supplies" mean in relation to a 200km then my pack mainy consists of:
2 x 6 bottles of energy drink,
24 small bottles of water,
6 small bottles of coca cola,
1 large bottle of coca cola,
1 orange juice bottle w. extra vit.C
8 chocolate donuts,
4 plates of chocolate,
3 cans of baked beans
1 large bread,
1 packet of buisquits,
2 packs of potato-salad,
1.2liter of ketchup.
