The last few days here in Quionga

Great dirt tracks again and th ee light was awesome

Just North of camp, in Quionga, great track, if not a little sandy

Spot the warthogs - they appear to be getting used to me - loitering instead of sprinting away

Warthogs near the track, bit of wildlife action

A funny week of running, I have actually got a fair number of kilometres in, not as much as I would like ideally, but fitted them in around work. My weekly average is down to around 60 for the last few weeks, but they have been quality runs with some good pace (for me) injected into them. The warthogs have been seen a few times and also monkeys, the late afternoons have been blue skied and the one early morning run was great as the dawn crept into the sky and I managed  a quick 13 km before starting work.

I plan to head out into the car park shortly and do a 400 metre rep session, but not too inspired, one has to weave around somewhat and its 2100hrs already. Hopefully this late running will be  getting me used to something for the PBR attempt, even though there are no hills and my mileage is down..

My Hayasa‘s are definitely starting to disiintegrate but they will do for a while yet, and My Sportiva Raptors are hanging in there too, the sole on them is pretty robust and the uppers are in really good condition. They are lasting exceptionally well, but they are more of a solidly engineered trail shoe designed for mileage and have a stiffer and more isolated feel still. Good for tired feet…

A couple of days until I return to North Wales, and well looking forward to everything. Family, running, biking and the mountains, and maybe even a bit of Welsh sunshine? We shall see….
