woke up early the two boys were also awake.
I visited the loo then packed up .
once packed I was on my way.
I had 10 miles easy right !.
I hoisted up my pack and set off the trail was good and do as I marched I ate an apple that I had carried out
I felt good so was almost.ost speeding down the trail . .
I was in forest sonitvwas nice and cool as I pushed the miles.
eventually o came to a large bridge with a sign box .
I stopped signed my name then crossed over the wide bridge. once over I began the customary climb. I climbed for about an hour before the trail leveled out I was now cruising until I saw a familiar figure.
It was Pig Pen
wow great to catch you .as I have been chasing you
You took your time snail she said nut we k ew you were close.
Amy or Zippy is in front she ssys . Pig Pem is still.packimg
so I say goodbyes and head off to chase Zippy down.
the trail is typically ‘PUDD” Pointless ups and downs but it’s rock that kills my feet specially my right foot.
I push on for several hours unroll my foot yells SYOP
My foot is killing me do I have to stop and I remove my shoes and state at my foot I take 4 ibpropen and put my shoe back on as Pug pen comes by.
She looks at my foot .days that’s looks painfully and moves on .
after 5 mins break I set off After. her. .I seem.to have extra power as I race long thevtrsil and eventually emerge at a ish shelter. I walk towards the road and past the visitor centre.
