Sunday 10 June.
I slept well and was stripped down and ready to go by 7
I was a nice sunny morning . hmmmm going to be hot I thought.
my first target was the be t shelter maybe 3 miles away . shapes had come past my tent last night to get there.
I was I.pressed as I was struggling this morning itvwas all up.hill and steep at that .
I had to keep stopping . co.e on snail .I pushed but I see.ed to be dead. I slept well I ate well come on. I eventually came to the shelter but as it was off trail I decided not to visit it.
as I passed it the trail flu.bed even steeper I urged my self on .up and up .the trail was well kept and cut back but itvwas just steep and rocky so I struggled to get any speed up.
eventually I decided to stop for a morning break . a sign that I am struggling . I ate snack Bx glugged water. I was still relax ing when shapes passed by.
I finished my break then set off down the trail but I still didn’t have any ummph. Even my normal plod was slow.
Eventually I came to the next shelter there was one tent left but I I passed it to get water I recognised the owner. Ma. good effort.
this guy walks miles and late into the night .
I told him .that I was struggling
so.i pointed out that it was a very steep elevation.
I filtered water then took off it was 12 miles to town but with more climbs I dontvthink I would make it .
I shortly are I ed at the. limb a d it was open and so the Sun. beat down roasting me omg itvwas steep it was hot it took me forever to climb it
and then Typicly I went straight down again .this annoyed me as my foot now began to hurt as the trail was so rocky. I pushed on my map said I should be going down but again. I just climbing.
at the next stream I filled up as the next spot I would .camp
But oddly I seemd to have energy back and so shortly steamed into camp
Tent up. Then the rain came big buckets of it the sky went black as the Sun retreated oh well
cooking in my tent again
miles walked 20
