'I don't like Mondays...'
...at least not like this one. A brutally hilly 50 miles which - due to tons of walking on account of my painful, swollen feet & quads - took me an ungodly 14 hours.
J-B, Diana & Jan did a fabulous job at 50K persuading me not to quit there & then, so I made it to the race's 602.5K midpoint late in the day. Some consolation there. But I didn't make the official 13 hour time cutoff, so between that & my painful extremities I may be a non-starter tomorrow morning.
I'll try & sleep off the pain, but I'm none too hopeful. Sorry to disappoint, but this is physical, not mental.
Cheers for now,
