It was a super warm day (28C), I was feeling kinda sluggish, but moving very well over the terrain. I rolled my ankle 1 km in, and almost pulled the plug there... but i kept going.
About halfway through, I was 20 minutes up on record pace, then the heat started getting to me. I had to stop and have a swim, as well as many water breaks. In the end, my heart rate was super high, just to walk up the hills. rolled into George lake where i sat in the water for 30 minutes. Then off to get fish and chips and wait for Lindsay (my wife) to finish. She got the female FKT! what a rockstar.
