Went out for a 3hr run last weekend in the Waitaks on 2 hrs sleep. Hard going on a muddy trail on a slow run when you've had hardly any sleep. Back to 100% training with a taper week coming up for last run in the Xterra series next Saturday.

X-Terra 5 Whitford.

Didn't want to take any wrong turns so made extra sure I was always on the right track. Lots of hill climbs so went out quite fast to get to first hills. Made good time through the mudbath that the trail had become. Walked a few of the later hills as I'd used up a lot of energy at start. Made a few places in the last 2k's. Lost only 2 places through the entire race. 1:53 for the 18k's but with the 800m of ascent it felt a lot longer. No injuries and feel quite fresh after race.
