The day before
Pace avg=5:20 per K
Hr avg = 127
Temperature = 20+C
My main objective for today was a late morning after an early night knowing it won't be much of a sleep tonight.
Breakfast finished at 9 and I was there for 8:45 after waking without an alarm which is the best way to start a day.
We had spent most of yesterday evening sorting and packing drop bags for the checkpoints up to 80K plus a few extra and after breakfast we finalised the packing before handing them over. Having that job done and the bags out of the way meant one less thing to think about and second guess. A quick walk up town before lunch to buy some last minute supplies including an ice box and batteries and then it was time for lunch at the hotel followed by a race briefing. A short recovery run and the sorting of bags filled in the gap before dinner and all that's left now is to wait for morning to come.....
From tomorrow morning you can follow the race live from www.spartathlon.gr and my progress will be available by clicking on the spot me icon on this page.
