Today I did some conditioning for the Silvermine XL run early next month. I started my run at 16:25 in heat of 34 degrees Celsius, which also made it the perfect run to try out my new hydration pack - the UltrAspire! I went up all the Canaries and then climbed all the way to the Saaltjie. I was suffering up and down and if it was not for the UltrAspire I would probably still be on the Saaltjie. I've still got some work to do before Silvermine, but at least I'm trained at suffering!
