Day Six - Ardchattan
A race too far for me even though I didn't feel too bad on the way to the start. Uphill first few controls were a real slog and it was all I could do to run - mainly kept going because I could see Neil Conway (my two minute man) ahead and could tell I was slowly catching him. Then the course stopped going up and he started to pull away again! Got to the far end of the course after the two long legs and my legs were gone, really struggled on the last few and had to walk a bit, pretty much crawled into the finish.
21st today (and two places behind Neil in the end) and 22nd overall (one place behind Martin W and two behind Neil). Thought I might have done better overall but not too fussed as after the previous few weeks I was delighted just to succeed in running all six days.
A good week of running in the bank - seven weeks to Berlin now.....
