2nd November – 22rd November

Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.

– Dalai Lama

Post Lantau 70 has been a week of smiles and being thankful. There was much to be happy with. I finished a race which after UTMF STY was a key goal. I felt that I have the mental ability to get through a race and also the physical ability wasn’t bad. I do think a lot of the issues come down to the actual shoes I was wearing. SO this needs to be reviewed. The feet are key in these situations. Once you have issues there, they travel up the legs.

So one of the biggest issues with the race was the cramp. This was a key feature from around 15km in. Now that in the grand scheme of things is super soon to happen. So theoretically, there are a few things that you would want to consider in this situation:

  1. Hydration
  2. Salts and electrolytes
  3. Yoga or stretching
  4. Pickle Juice

However, for me, none of these matter.

Friday 21st November – Oxfam Trailwalker

Last year, I didn’t even know what Trailwalker was and this year I supported Team Green Boys team through the last two stages. Great fun and pushed hard to keep up. Carrying around 6 litres of water plus poles plus gels was an arduous task to say the least.

Really proud of how hard the guys pushed especially through some dark places.
