The next part of my training was to increase my km,so i chose the Vilaflor 30km. OMG it was gruelling the first half 13km was perfect with two ups and downs, but all in all i felt comfortable. The heat was imense it was a beautiful day with sun shining from the start, the views as always were breathtaking but this didnt stop the pain for the second half. I got diagnosed with imflammed ligaments in my right Knee but was confident that i trained correctly and had them sorted. How wrong i was, after more ups and and I mean more ups the knee really started to hurt. My run partner Diego also was feeling the pain with cramps all the way up his legs. We managed to finish but only with the thought of a aqua ice bath to take away the pain.
We took a finnish lady with us who we met in our sports shop, with enrolled her in the race and took her along,Saila laine did well she is normally a road marathon runner but did well finishing well before me and Diego, she actually won her caterory even tho we found out she was the only one in it.
My only worry is my knee moving towards the bluetrail 66km i fell mentally ready and my fitness is good but if this knee doesnt hold up im going to be in trouble.
