Day 1 at auchingarrich. 3rd in the end and despite being 10 minutes down on Matt really pleased with result after no O since May and a sore leg so not high expectations. A lot of broken bashing and pretty scrappy nav inside circle but seemed to gain time on long leg. Thought DJ had caught me up cos he was moving fast and I was behind him for a few controls but dropped him to 17 where I ran north and somehow found the crossing point. Enjoyes this area and looking forward to tomorrow

Lower hamstring/upper calf hurt a lot after run and so have walked yesterday and today with mum, which hasn’t helped. 5+ hours walking both days, staying at 3500m tonight next to Matterhorn before home tomorrow. Just gonna rest it and see how it is for Sunday

RUNNING 5:09:15 [3] 27.13 km (11:24 / km) +2626m 7:41 / km
shoes: x talon ultra 290

Monster run in the alps from Alagna to Alpenzu Grande. Steep climbing from the very start, without much of a break all the way up to col d’olen at 2887m (new pb). However had a bit of a shocker about an hour in and took a 45 minute detour.

Had the map in my bag and thought I knew the route well enough, so when I got to a junction at a wee village called pianmisura I went shooting off 90 degree the wrong direction, climbed 300m odd up some zig zags to a cute donkey farm where the path ended and so got the map out and realised. Went off back down the zig zags, and about halfway down heard a thud and seen my slide (sandal) on the ground. The other one was gone, so I turned back up the zig zags in the hope of finding it but it was nowhere to be seen. Tough one to take, but they’re only £10 from sports direct so not too disastrous.

Got to the col in about 3 hours, and the beautiful alpine meadows turned to rubble and ski lifts. Ski resorts are the scum of the earth. At least they’re not everywhere tho. Felt pretty sick after tanning two Refugio-prepared ham rolls, and the grimness wasn’t helped by the loss in altitude making it hotter and hotter. Was relieved to make it down to the valley and start a gentle traverse along to Alpenzu at 1779m. Some run but dead now, hopefully haven’t trashed myself too much
