12 Fixes for 48 Hours

Usually by now I'd have forgotten how awful I felt during a race but this last one is sticking with me quite clearly.  I watched that movie about a woman stuck on a rock with a shark circling her for days and thought shit, if that was me I'd be screwed, I'd have given up.  She didn't even have access to an aid station every 2.5 miles or a bag of mini Twixes.

It's time to move on and decide what's next.  There are two choices - accept 100k as my limit or try again. Fuck it, let's try again. I have unfinished business with this race.

Here's the list of things I need to fix before going back at it in February 2019.

Contact points

Blisters - try combinations of Ininjis, wool socks and wider shoes.  I'm planning to try Altra Torins to keep cushioning but add more space for my toes, the side foot/toe blisters I had were ridiculous. Ideally looking to have 2 different shoe types to change things up so sticking with my larger size in the Hoka Cliftons also.
