Just like that the 2nd race of the 4 Deserts Grand Slam Plus series has come to a close. I can’t believe it. The race was a complete success with winning the female division, and placing 6th overall in a time of 29:10! This success included pacing myself, training really smart, and most importantly putting the right fuel into my body to set myself up for success. When it comes to food out there, it is a very fine dance between understanding your body and the climate that it will be in. it is also a fine dance between looking at your own body weight and how much is enough to ensure that you are racing at optimal potential. Too often folks can get caught up in the hype of making their pack as light as possible and then they will end up sacrificing on their food allotment. So let’s take a peek at how I prepared for the Sahara Race (Namibia).

On Friday 8th April, 1200 athletes descended into the Sahara Desert from across the globe. During the 6hr coach journey from the airport to the first bivouac tent mates were chosen. These 7 people were going to be the closest people to you for the next 10 days. Probably sharing some of your highest and lowest moments you have ever experienced. Arriving at 18:30hrs, the desert was in darkness. Dragging my wheelie suitcase over the rocky terrain to Tent 138, home. It was the start of living a simple human adventure that was going to test my physical and mental boundaries. The Tent (use the word loosely) is black thick cloth held up in the centre by two large sticks, secured down by 4 tent pegs. The first night in the desert was tough. The wind whistled through the tent bringing with it all the sand. Even, with a roll mat and sleeping bag I was freezing. Wearing long running leggings, long sleeve top and a down jacket I quickly realised that I needed to be taking extra layers to sleep in at night during the race.
