Wartrail stage Day 1.
My goal for wartrail was the win, so my plan was to stay in touch on the run and cycle and smash the paddle (not that original, but hey). The run to Balloch all went to plan, I stuck with Leo all the way, keeping up a good pace and not stopping for much. I starting feeling a big fatigued running down toward skiddaw and I had run out of water, but kept pushing. Leo powered down into the Balloch valleys and had a solid run to the finished, while i just managed some slower shuffling, losing 14min to the end. Fastest split to Balloch for me.
The conditions were stunning, everything was green, this definitely slowed some sections down but the were also some new graded sections which ran much faster.
