So far life on the Antartic Dream has been good…I have done a lot of eating, sleeping and catching up with fellow competitors. The crossing has been relatively smooth – according to the ship captain conditions are about a 4 out of 12.
Competitors have just been briefed on the first stage which will start tomorrow at 6am and end at 9pm. The first stage will be based on time and therefore I will have 15hours to see how far I can run….Faaak the longest I have ever run for in one go is about 11 and a half hours. This is going to be a new challenge and I am super excited to start the first stage on King George Island. The weather conditions are looking good for the first stage and the course director thinks the faster guys should be able to cover 10km an hour.
OK I better go sort out my gear now, but I will keep you posted..
