i have said many times before that its determination that gets you through long events.
but in this instance theres also an awareness of when to back off in bad weather.
i think spoonman said it very well in the CR thread when he said 'no way i will i try to navigate in night in whiteout - thats just dangerous'.
wont repeat what he said in the sentence after that.
blinded determination in this 'race' can cause big problems.
am leaving thursday so will spend the day down there checking out some final bits&pieces near bogong village.
doing the maps up today, have my head around the water/food pickups and approximate pacing etc...
have about 30 gps waypoints locked in.
knee feels good: getting some cortisone tomorrow to try and keep it good over the race.
as tamsin would say 'it will be an adventure'.
not sure how long this will take (being very weather dependant with potential for sit-outs and or back-offs) but I WILL FINISH!
thanks for all your support people.
sleeping well. feel calm. focused.
