Tough...the first thing that come to my mind if I think about the Famara Total trail race. All the extreme situations you can imagine on trail we had to fight with all of them today...sand, rocks, vertical, rocky downhill, wind, heat...you have to fight with the elements.🌋 It's not easy for anybody, people are struggling, taking over by pain in the whole body. There is no better or weaker runner... You have no opponents but your own mind.
15km: - the first 2km in sand, - the next 4-5 km in extreme vertical cliff,
- you can rest 1-2 km on flat(ter a bit), - and then continue with 5-6 km rocky downhill
- finished with 2km sand run again
If you didn't fell down you are lucky (I could manage twice... Quite small scars only tho') Finished 4th with a nice fight for the 3rd place, I gave 120%, she was better...maybe next time I catch her :) 15km 1:55:40 (the first 1:51:??...so I'm superhappy), 1st age-grouper (no throphy tho' in this distance -nor in 45km- only 7,5 and 30km..I can't lie, I'm disappointed and don't really understand the situation)
But one thing is sure...I love this race!! Congratulations for all the runners who made this fantastic but very hard extreme trail race today! Now it's time for a big recovery sleep😊💪
