Tough Stuff   Leave a comment

At least this time I didn’t make any big mistakes. Grizedale Forest is just as tough as Simpson Ground – the green parts are terrible, and the white forest is bad, with lots of fallen trees, muddy ruts from logging activities, and branches all over (above and on the ground). I was just as slow as yesterday, but I think the winner’s speed was slower as well, and I’ll probably improve yesterday’s 26th place to around 20th. I finished the 6.3 km course in 85:05. The GPS was squiggly again so my route is hand-drawn.
Tomorrow is a rest day, and if it doesn’t rain too much I’ll do some hiking on the mountains. Then on Thursday comes the real mountain stage of this event at Pike O’Blisco – back out of the forest onto the open fells.
