NGOC-50 Long day, Brown, 8km/230 m - no wayyyyy!!!!!!
Good run tho felt like a Long-O/Fell race after yesterday, and two legs at least had massively long sections of dead running - esp. the huge leg E-W where oldDaniel & I toiled up togather, must have taken 10 mins that hill alone!!!! 230m climb my arse.
Nigel Bunn (on Black!) popped out on my way to no 6 & I could not live with him, we had next 2 controls the same, & only clawed him back when he banana-ed slightly 6-7. Lovely there, why not more controls there? :-(
(Nigel spent 10 mins looking for his compass at no 2, so his result looks awful. luckily he found it!)
A stream near the last control ate my lower left leg, I was lucky to get away with a cut & bruises, & not a sprained ankle or - WORSE - a knackered knee ..... First aid before Download.
Lovely day. Happy 50th NGOC - was great! (in the end). Stunning runs on Black by Matt Whipple & Oliver Tonge. We kind of expect it from Ben & Megan ......
Ben Maliphant ran 32:58 for 10km on the road today, so missed this.
4th, 45 secs behind Clive, but fine - he made errors ; I'll take it. Felt far better than last Sunday at West woods. that's more important.....
