MDC run from Pen y Fan - but arrived early, and expected everyone else to be in the "slow group" so went off on my own. Hoped to intercept Ben somewhere but didn't due to a miscommunication.
Hard up the toilet track - but overall time seems quite slow. Corn Du, Pen y Fan, down Jacob's Ladder then back up, then back over to Corn Du to find the other runners (Ben included) and returned with them to Pen y Fan for cakes.
Pace somewhat slower after that - back down Jacob's Ladder. Follow Gary along a "path" back to the saddle and down toilet track to finish.
Ankle not really strong enough today, not helped by shoe lace loosening a bit. Tripped a couple of times on 2nd (faster) descent of Jacobs Ladder, but held it together, and being very cautious back down toilet track - despite this still knocked 2 mins or so off my previous best. Maybe without ankle injury sub-10 looks more possible?
Made a good session from this, and reasonable distance - not bad given PYF is a hard route to extend. If I'd started a few minutes earlier with Ben - would have just about managed Cribyn as well - would have been really good hills session then!
