Three words describe today, “elevation, road, panoramic vistas”. I had to pay for the third as 2/3 of the walk was elevation and climbing and 80% of today’s walk on the road. The combination of the climbing and road has left me with what I think is the beginning of a shin splint as I have a pain in the front of my leg which made the last third of the journey, which was all decent, slow and painful.

In spite of the challenges the views were fantastic and I pushed through to a new boundary for myself of walking 34.4 km although Brother Body is not impressed!
