Day 25 - 39km

Today was a really enjoyable one, after waking up at 4:20 because of the intolerable mozzies that were attacking me inside of my tent (even though I made sure it was done up properly) I lay there glued to my iPhone refreshing the @irunfar Twitter feed that was doing a great job as always in keeping everyone up to date with the happening of the months big race, the Tranvolcania, which is held on the Island of La Palma off of Mainland Spain. 

The defending champion to the line honors again but a young Australian call Blake Hose and 3rd, he is is going to be world class for a long time I think. 

I packed my tent away and zipped my bag up ready to rock for another day. 40km to a town called San Marcos was the script for today, I knew San Marcos had Hotel options which always makes it more exciting to work towards.  

A lot of today was spent walking, the impact of running with my funny knee did not feel right, however, after lunch when my legs were warm and slightly numb, I did run for about 8 or 10km. It was great, 

the heat on Mexico is something else, I am going to have a long think about how best avoid the sun between 1pm and 3pm. It is just so hot. Today I drank 10L of water and didn't see once, that gives you an indication of how much I am sweaty!!! 

today I spent a lot of time thinking about the fact of my body adjusting to the work load I am asking of it on a daily basis. I think I am starting to adjust. I ought to be...... 

Staying at hotel in San Marco tonight, again, nothing special but it will do just fine. 

Another day on the road tomorrow and then potentially a rest day, I will see how the rig feels!  

Mths sun is brutal on my skin. It is my number 1 concern!!!
