Day 34 – Toughing it out

Fatigue has really kicked in today and it’s been a real struggle on day 34 of Challenge Antarctica. The legs are really feeling the pain but despite this Baz has gritted his teeth and achieved 16 very tough nautical miles in 11.5 hours. With no energy and every push a mammoth effort, Baz is fighting on and continuing to gain inspiration from The Baton he is carrying on his pulk as a reminder on why he is doing this challenge to raise awareness and funds for brave service men and women, their families and veterans. It is a powerful motivator and one that is driving Baz forward when his body is feeling the pressure and relentless physical effort required to reach the South Pole. Weather conditions have been mostly good today but very cold down to -20 degrees. SATcase continues to perform in the extremely cold temperatures as voice calls continues to be clear as Baz keeps his family and SATcase team updated on his progress. The end of the day closed in with low visibility and high winds. 102 nautical miles to go to reach the South Pole.
