Day 58 - 30km

 

I shorter day today which was nice! The last two 4 day blocks I have been able to get a shorter day in on the last day, the legs start to feel it on day four. Still got 156kms in the legs in 4 days!!

Today the run started with a slight climb over a mountain but then leveled out again. This would be the last of the flat running for a couple of weeks as I have some serious climbing to do for the next two week in order to get over the to wetland of the Yucatan Peninsular.

In face, the last 12kms of todays run I was running through city streets with traffic and side walks, so different to 3 days ago in the middle of nowhere!! Thismeant it was slow going and rather frustrating. 

Tuxtla is the capition of this state I am currently in; it has a population 600,000 people and has everything that a city should have……including a Mac store!!!! I am now writing this on my laptop, as well as doing a lot of other things on it that have been piling up ever since charger broke a month ago.

I found the hostel that had been recommended to me in time for lunch. I had lunch on the roof top café as I watched the clouds roll in off the mountain range that surrounded the city.

Tomorrow I have day off. 

Another good 4 day block done and some great progress made!!
