Just back from Lyford and the Mt Lyford Challenge. Jane lined up for the “Extreme Challenge”, a 20km, 2000m “running” race. Jane crushed it, winning the woman’s race in 4hr01mins. It sounded pretty hard, with some crazy river running, as well as some very nice ridge running.
I did the 9km, 856m race. This was a pretty good choice as it meant a sleep in and then a little nap after Jane started her race/before my race started. I was pretty happy with my race, winning it in 54min30sec, beating KerryFass by about 8mins and breaking the course record by about 4mins.
I’ll post some photos and a few more details later in the week.
An easy 4-5 days coming up and then a “crash week” that should include running sections of the Routeburn!
