Day 5

19 Sep

220 kms done.
Spent all night with wind howling around my tent and plenty of wind in the tent next door. Not much sleep. Took it easy today and managed 6:08 finishing with Rowdy and Lachlan. Windy, temp only hit 34 today. Just back from Dalhousie Springs … water temp 36 degrees. Day 5 done. 430kms to go.

    You are amazing. No matter how short your daily post I am pleased to hear you are still okay and moving forward each day. They tell me after 4/5 days the body adjusts and it seems to just accept what is happening. My thoughts are with you daily. Life seems so ….. well less challenging to what i am imagining what you are doing.

    It is not just the 6 hours of running that you have to put up with but with the tough conditions with the tent etc.

    Best wishes

    Ray and Helen

    Yay Jane,
    You sound so calm……and like it’s just a jog in the park (a pretty sandy, dry, hot one). Not sure that the 36deg water sounds soothing either.

    Awesome stuff and glad you are doing OK…….bets on you being the last one standing!

    Have a great time out there and keep the photos and updates coming – amazing stuff.

    Rest well,
    Cathie (Gadfly)

    Fond my memories of Dalhousie Springs, when we ran the Simpson in 2002 our race didn’t start until Purnie Bore, so at that point we were still just tourists enjoying the scenery.
