I've just managed to catch up with the last few days on the blog (See posts below). Today (Day 82) was the toughest day for a long time. Scorching hot conditions (110 F), high humidity and no breeze meant I had to battle through almost every mile. The last 5 miles were sensational as I managed to clock up a total of 40.4 miles. That's a new record for me, beating last week's 40.1 mile effort.
Dave and Mark were instrumental in getting me though the day in a decent time. Full report to follow soon.
