170 km – MINI challenge?

The 170 km were tough – much tougher than I had anticipated. Of course I was utterly exhausted before setting out after months of hard training, my normal work, and all the work and preparations for the concert. The changes that I had to make to this mini challenge due to BCN not giving permits etc, left me with almost a week less of tapering to my training and only three days rest after the concert instead of a week.

But I did it – after hours of terrible struggle. By half-way I was already asking myself “Mini challenge? MINI challenge? I can’t find anything mini about this challenge!”.

But this mini challenge was more useful than you can imagine…it gave be a good dose of the suffering that I will come across in June. Two years have passed since my last extreme solo challenge, and though I never forget the suffering, the pain, or the desperation, it’s all become much more real now. More real than before those 170km.

The best of all was as always the human gems. The start in Girona was a wonderful send off – hugs from Isabel Muradas the delagate from City Hall and her team, several friends came out to see me off – Xevi Avellana, Jacky Camos, adn Quim Arpi, and of course Siscu and Manmachine were there. This was the push which carried me to Barcelona – this wave of support, and that of the friends along the way.

So better than writing pages here, I’m leaving you with the video clips which I made along the way – it’s a cronicle of the 170 km adventure…

Just click on each link to see the video clips:
