Long, tough day out.
Felt like I was struggling on the road at the start but realised this was cos it was climbing more than I thought. Ok up messmate though got behind big group of people and struggled to get round. Freaked out a bit at the scary rope climb, and descent and generally got pissed off at being overtaken on the rocks even though everyone around me was hiking too.
Went over on my left ankle pretty hastily but it seems to survive though went over on it another couple of times on the way back down to cooks mill. Decided to carry on. Fine along the river to neds, and hiked the climb fairly steadily, then the ridge just seemed to go on forever (but at least no scary bits). Rolled ankle again but managed to jog down the hill.
Longest half marathon ever, and most technical race I've done. Not sure I really enjoyed it as just can't run on those rocks.
Clare and Steve both smashed it, 2nd lady and 1st man.
