Intense experiences to learn a little bit every day
After 6 participations in this type of adventure racing in several stages and self-supported, here in Mongolia I have obtained my best sporting result. Finishing 5th of the overall final ranking among 96 participants exceeds my 6th place in the Jungle Marathon 2010 (Amazon Jungle).
Finally 5th in final overall position! I am very pleased with this multi stages Ultra, going from less to more. A little more conservative at the beginning and stronger at the end.
Albert he has won the stage! The organization of the event highlighted today the meritorious race that has done, as he has increased the pace as the days went by to end up winning a stage.
Today I enjoyed one of the most perfect stages and with better results of my career; my friends, I ended in third place in this part of 76Km. I am totally happy, because I also feel very good physically!
Finished the third stage and I'm very happy! I'm eleventh in the general classification! Today was great! We started climbing a very hard and technical slope and the group gets very dispersed, then there was a technical descent among the trees to reach an area between narrow valleys that led to a community with three monasteries, in the middle of nowhere, another world, a jewel.
Second stage of 46'1 Km. with 1042 m. of unevenness. It's been raining all night! But we were lucky and during the stage only a fine rain accompanied us.Today the landscapes we enjoyed were spectacular, but the route was not easy.
Today 36 kms stage, all by grassy steppe... At the Km. 25 we had to climb a mountain quite hard, but what was harder to descend, because running down a long time with 10Kg in my back was painful for my knees, but that's part of the game, and at the end I felt good and strong. Right now I am in the 11th place of the classification.
Already in Ulan Bator with the latest preparations to start on Sunday a new running adventure, the Gobi March. A 250Km. self-sufficiency race that in 6 stages (7 days, because there is a stage of almost 80Km. for which we have two days).
We started a collaboration with the environmental entity “CeroCO2”, in order to compensate for all the greenhouse gas emissions that I cannot avoid in my trips or diverse activities.
