I dug deep today. Some where in the pain cave there was a determination to keep pushing or die trying. I don’t want to get too philosophical, but I found out a lot about myself and my mental toughness today. Unfortunately, as being stretchered into an ambulance and taken the last 30km of the race to hospital proved, my physical ability to cope with race pace in 40 degrees desert heat didn’t match.

Tyrrell earned legendary status for making it home under the 10 hour cut off. My time in hospital meant I missed dinner, so with another 6,600 kcal of spent energy coming largely from burning body fat today, I will be looking to get some serious carbs and protein on board tomorrow.

One thought on “Evil”

  1. Hi Cris and Tyrrell. Good luck with the trip. Hope it isn’t ‘too’ easy for you both.

    Adam says ‘Tyrrell can you bring me back some meerlust’?

    Keep on pedelling.
