Despite knee pain I had decided to do the 60 km. The knee was bandaged and as it turned out the least problem within those 60 km. The only thing I did not achieve that day was to stay under 10 hours, but I think even with 10 hours 40 minutes, I can be very satisfied.
Since I didn’t feel like walking the last kilometers in the dark in the evening, the start was already shortly before 6 o’clock. Following are the impressions I experienced on the way.
After exactly 62.9 km I arrived at my destination. It all hurt and I knew there would be sore muscles (it was much less than I thought, fortunately), but I was glad to have made it through without getting a single blister.
