Canyons and hills
18-May-2012 03:20:32 AM [(GMT+09:00) Osaka, Sapporo, Tokyo]

At last the end of the dreaded soft sand and on to solid footing for the dreaded long day. 86 odd k of canyons and hills with a climb and fall of 2600m in the cool 37 degs. Started off well …dropped into the canyon and kept up a good 6k an hour for the first 22k and carried on at the same pace into stage 3. All well till we didn’t follow rule 1 of RTP ….follow the flags!!! Finally found our way back to the flags and then hadn’t realized we had been spun round and ended up walking back almost to checkpoint 2!! We lost about an hour and were running short of water as we managed to get to chkp 3. Then a hot 300m climb in a canyon to the big event…700m climb over 9.2k …  managed to get that out of the way in about 2 hours. That  was supposed to be the end of the climbs but it carried on and on ups and downs till almost the end of the day. The sun went down at 8 and we were left with20k in the dark. Managed to get that done in 3h45and got home at 11.45pm (16hrs45).

 

After a decent sleep been lazing about today waiting for the5k stage tom into Petra that starts at 6am …lets hope there are no surprises there from Carlos.

MORE trekking than the 87km?! Are you mad?! You're a sucker for punishment! You made great time getting back into camp, despite your little adventure! Great work throughout the week, Harmony!!

Why are you competing?
Although Gobi was the toughest thing I have ever
done I had an amazing time and met some great
people. The physical and mental challenge of
friendly competition on the course is countered by
the views and the banter of evenings round the
fire.
