|SHC 6km course|
Lesson learned the hard way! In hindsight, I shouldn't have gone there on my own, not just because of an accident which would be bad enough, but there is no way of getting help that I know of. Another thing, it's too isolated an area alone on those trails...I think so anyhow. There wasn't another person anywhere after leaving the camping ground. Anyhow, it's done and I'm relieved not to have returned home in an even more sorry state!
The 6km course was tougher than I'd expected : more hills and more difficult terrain than I wanted. Hate to think what the half marathon and 50km are like! At least, I'll know what to expect on 31st August.
Trail running is definitely an acquired talent!
