Today was Kepler Challenge day.
I was a pretty nervous, as hadn't done enough training & have had a tight calf all week.
I felt rubbish by the time I got to Luxmore Hut, and was seriously considering pulling out.
But I carried on, and once past the next feed station at Forest Burn felt a bit better. Quite pleased I carried on as I finished in 8:38, 29 minutes quicker than my previous time, and after only about 8 weeks of real training.

Officially it is 60km, and my altimeter recorded 1855m of ascent (6085ft) (same descent of course as it's a loop track, start and finish are the same)
Legs pretty tired now!
