South Coast Track 2002 Apr

South Coast Track, 20 years later     1-4 April, 2002

This was 25 hours’ walking, spread over three and a half days. That was WAY too quick. I was sometimes so exhausted I would sleep on my pack in breaks. As any who have done it will know, the most tiring aspect was the thick mud – negotiating a way around it, and, worse, trying to pull oneself out of it while it did its level best you suck you in and under!! My muscles at the time were only geared for running, not this kind of heavy walking; I found it very difficult.
The beaches were grand, nonetheless. Next time I would take at least six days.
