Well today was running day 300 and not only that I was the day I broke through the 13,000km mark. YAY!!!
Unfortunately that is where the “yay” ends because despite this great milestone I was feeling tired and unmotivated!! I was in a lovely hostel in Nazca and could have very easily taken a day off but my inner self told me to push on…
It took me a good 5km if walking to the edge if the town to get the spark to actually break into a run and even then I needed and Inca Kola and chocolate bar to help.
To make matter worse the running was just really really hard. I was running through a harsh desert with a strong headwind blowing into my face. I had to push myself forward with every step and in the end I had to resort to screaming at my self to keep going. It was hard, really hard.
But luckily after about 40km I arrived at a little restaurant (generous description) and managed to sort a place to camp and some dinner (which came with a complimentary fried fly!)
Now I am in my tent and its only 6.30. Early night and then push on tomorrow.
