It is about 2:30 p.m. and the heat has taken it´s toll. Without much protest, Wayne will sleep for a couple of hours during the midday heat. Hopefully, he can rally, as his lap times have continued to deteriorate. Andreas has taken the lead on the last lap. After the rest it should be much cooler and better for running. I also need to get him to eat more, as his calorie intake has also dwindled. I know how hard it is to get a variety of foods, but I will try to stockpile a few while he sleeps. He has completed forty-five laps so far. This rest may also allow us to shorten the stop tonight. His attitude and demeanor contines to be excellent.
