Last Spine training

Went up to Edale again yesterday for a 'bimble'. Woke early so just got up, got going, and was parked by 06:30. As I started it was dark but as I climbed Jacob's Ladder dawn began to break and I was overcome by the sheer beauty of the moment.


I posted the following on Facebook at the time which I think sums up the moment:

"Just reached the top of Jacobs Ladder as the first light of a new day breeches the horizon. Glorious. As I climbed I reflected on the past year - how lucky I am to have such a supportive family, how lucky I am to have loving children that I am truly proud of. But most of all how lucky I am to have my darling Jenny - she has tried so hard to be my support, my strength, this year - and has succeeded so wonderfully well. I am a very lucky man"

23 miles/5:30/great day out....... and that's my in-situ Spine training done........happy days!

Feeling confident, feeling strong.....and ready for The Spine - it's there for the taking

Indeed it is Richard, The Spine has your name written all over it and by the look of all your training and successes in recent months it will be amazing.
Have a great 2013
