Today I put in a marathon distance to a massive lake with hotels spotted around the shores. I ended up at a hotel called Las Angels,originally when I turned up the owner said that she did not have any room available but I explained what I was doing and that I was prepared to camp and she said I could set up anywhere I camped in the garden for a small fee. I spent the afternoon in the pool and decided that I would stay an extra night there to recover the day relatively soon after arriving. It was obvious to me that this would be a great place to rest the body for a day and although I felt like I did not need a rest day, I was smarter than that and forced my self to rest.
While I was out running today I met a guy called German that was out training for his 4th Iron Man. We ran for about 7km and told each other stories about where we came from and where we wanted to go. He was a lawyer that had done his masters in NYC!!! Very talented and nice guy.
