Yeh, great attempt Daz, it's a huge challenge and you managed a real long section of overall route in dark (through some trick nav bits IMHO) and then no daytime benefit from the weather, really is nowhere to hide from it out there for the most part - you need a bit of luck with this one.
You guys are picking up miles (good to hear your over that bug MCD) and after my fast start I'm slowing down as I hit the suburbs of Tapertown. But thats just because my biggest event of my year is just around the corner (so could well be a record month for me). Looking forward with equal parts excitement and trepidation
With ideas like that, feel free to encroach Shazmo. Maybe one to add to the list
Fair point Cragchick - Not finished book yet myself, but SJ doesn't have the added responsibility of kids as far as I know. I've only had Isaac 4.5 months, but already releasing I've got to be cleverer about planning runs to maximise family time and I must have had loads of under-ultilised time before he came... but wouldn't swap Looks a good challenge in the Lakes..... Maybe one to add to the list
