The terrain was also getting very technical by this stage. We were running through crusty dry plateau and every time I put my foot down, they sunk about 10cm. I was not able to run properly and this made me feel really desperate. To aggravate the situation, I felt a very nasty pain on my skin over the lumber spine due to the friction caused by my heavy rucksack against my back.
We also had to cross some river canyons several times. The water was cold, about 15 Celcius in the morning and I was not enjoying that! Here's a link to a video taken while I crossed one of them :
