S6D day 6, Glen Feader W. Good to have the reverse order start to give a bit of impetus to weary legs. Started hard up the hill, but was blowing quickly and missed when we dropped into a bit of heathery moraine. I didn't realise I had passed Will here, but knew that the wolves would soon be biting at my heels. Some big climbs and heather bashing ensued with Mark and Will chasing me down and just as I was getting ready to hop on the train I missed on the slope allowing both to slip past above me. Hammered the next leg to try to get back in touch and was lucky that they missed the control. Phew, needed to sit in for a bit to recover and enjoyed letting someone else do the work. Hung on to Mark for all I was worth through the last part, he was running well!
Got to be happy with the week - it's been a pleasure to be back in the forest and running relatively competitively. Great planning every day made the most of the terrain in spite of a few areas that were only OK. Great for the kids too, Alex loved running up the run in on the big screen!
