46.5km training run

That is the second furthest I have ever been. Nice little jog around the Peninsula until I left a blob of my DNA on the road to Noordhoek when I stacked it again (hell, it wouldn’t be a long run if I managed to stay vertical the whole way would it?). I lost the good runners on Chapman’s Peak (no surprise there). Ended up in the sea at Hout Bay after debating with Wiebs whether it was safe from parasites and god knows what else. We jumped in anyway and kept our mouths shut.
