Day 19 of 32- Donegal to Bundoran – 19 Miles
Mini Horses. Big Horses. The Port of The Dead. Ballyshannon. Sheep. More sheep. The Wild Atlantic Way. The River Erne
Not a drop of rain. Sunny skies. An ideal day for going 19 miles on foot. I’m more exhausted today than on a stormy day. Good sleep tonight.
I always say to go fast enough to reach your destination (before sunset), and slow enough to not get injured. I’m at a steady 3MPH if I only walk. 4MPH if I walk fast. 5 MPH if I run. 6MPH if I run marathon pace which is hard to do with a backpack and capturing footage and photos of the landscape and journey.
I’m feeling the impact of the last week of rolling hills and mountains. Over all healthy. I have a swollen right shin, a bruised toe, a shoulder out of place, and a slightly twisted pelvis and hip pain from the 3 USA Runs. Good news I have a chiropractor lined up in Galway.
Good spirits! Little pain. A madman I am I admit, other ultrarunners can relate. I’m at the Atlantic now enroute to Sligo then Galway.
I will be checking in with live national TV numerous times going into these final 13 days and talking about BUMBLEance Children’s National Ambulance Service and how the incredible people of Ireland can help by texting STAR to 50300 for a 2€ donation, or visiting https://www.bumbleance.com
Almost 400 miles in, 200 to go.
Also, a no fly zone for the drone. Military runway and barracks nearby.
