MDS: PRESENTATION & OFFICIAL TRAINING
Team SABLES.CAT - MDS 2011
We present the Website we have prepared for our team SABLES.CAT (www.sables.cat), with which we will participate in the next edition of the "Marathon des Sables", with a brief explanation and a photographic summary of the main training we did few weeks ago in the Delta del Ebro.


Within 24 hours we ran about 80 Km. spread over about 40 on Friday afternoon, and another 40 on Saturday morning. The route chosen was great for the goal we were looking for:  Flat terrain, sand and dunes near the sea, very good time, and an unusual environment that helped us to be motivated and jump right into the approach of living a great experience and discovering new places through the Ultra Marathon.


The first day we left Deltebre going around to the "Lighthouse of the Fangar", in Natural Wildlife Reserve of Punta del Fangar, through the Pool of Estella and the ubiquitous rice paddies in the area, tracing part of the river Ebro , and ending at Poblenou del Delta.


The second day we surrounded the lake of 'Tancada' to cross then the whole beach of Alauet and Trabucador, and enjoying for about 10Km. of having the sea on the right and left, to reach the foot of the "Lighthouse of la Banya", in the heart of the Natural Reserve of Punta de la Banya, and backtrack to Poblenou del Delta to celebrate the training with a good paella (not just freeze-dried in this case).


From now on we will publish at a frequency of once or twice a week on this site, and during the race you can go along our daily evolution. We pledge to make an effort to share this experience with you ... hope you will like it..

Ei, quina enveja em feu. Quan s'acosta Sables, sempre em venen les cuques. És una cursa màgica. Són tant fortes les vivències que es tenen allà que et marca per sempre.
De fet hi penso tornar.

DISFRUTEU AL MÀXIM CADA MOMENT!!!!!
