    Don't despair Pinno, if you're good at & enjoy descending you can always work on your climbing.

    Jimbob, were you the despondent looking Wrecsam Tri runner at the finish? I don't envy the trudge you would've had to make back up to the start. Wrecsam Tri are a top club btw, I've just joined them for the roads & XC.

    Thoroughly enjoyed my run out & I was impressed to spy Swiss Toni break into a jog while I was doing my warm-down.
    I've just decided I don't trust you anymore.

    You call that pace?? Actually I think I managed to recover just sufficiently to be sort-of-running by the bottom.

    Geoff says I make funny noises too!

    The "running terribly" was only the second half where I bonked, got cramp, and hobbled down, dropping 5 places!

    Don't worry, I walked when you went out of sight

    Go for it Pinno - top of the Stony Gully is a good vantage point! Possibly even more vantageous is the top Moel Gaer - it's more of a slog to get to but it's one of the oldest hillforts in Wales!!
