Dave Proctor continues his cross-Canada trek, which is due to come to a close in about two weeks.

He's going for the Trans-Canada speed record, aiming to run from St. John's, Newfoundland to Victoria, B.C. in 66 days.

Proctor set out in May and is on day 53 as of July 6.

He's moving through Saskatchewan at the moment and seems to still be going strong.

"I'm having a blast out here still. I'm still keeping the same pace, running between 106 and 107 kilometres every day, no days off."

It hasn't been without its hardships though.

Last week, he suffered a complex concussion after a nasty fall.

Proctor lost consciousness, though luckily a crew member was close by to help him up and call 911.

After a short break, Proctor pressed on, finishing 105 km that day.

Since then, he's been experiencing significant mood swings but has been staying aware of any cognitive shifts as much as possible.

"I've been kind of on-edge. Things bother me a lot more when it comes to weather like the rain or the wind, or even getting phone calls from friends and they might say something goofy or whatever and it gets under my skin. I have to remind myself that I do have a brain injury now, out here running, and that my brakes in my car are not working properly so I need to adapt a little bit. Every day poses a new challenge, that's one of the beautiful things out here."

He's stopped listening to music in order to limit stimulation and allow his brain to rest as much as possible.

As was the case in the early stages of his run, he's focusing on the things he has active control over.

"I'm managing all the things I can manage. I'm keeping a very tight ship out here, I'm running the same pace every day, I'm staying within myself. My crew members treat me like a toddler at the end of the day, they're doing everything for me. My crew right now is Joel Campbell and Mike Huber. At the end of the day they have dinner ready, they're washing the dishes, they're doing laundry. All I need to do is some body care, eat a bunch of food, and go to sleep. We do the same thing every day and the routine is working, so why break the routine?"

Proctor says 66 days of running was never going to be a smooth ride, and he's always planned to take it one day at a time.

"You've got a new canvas every day. You knew things were never going to be easy out here. You knew things like this could come up. You just have to drive through them and keep your eye on the finale."
