Hi all…It’s time to celebrate as i think i’ve finally (after about a year) solve the problem of THE left hand corner, that i’d kept missing again and again whenever the sun is out!! 💪🏼
This nemesis kept fighting me all the way through the ‘Ultra Step Challenge’ i did during advent 2020…And it has kept fighting me during my training now for my ‘Blindman Trail Marathon’…Until now! 🙌
I’ve finally realised that once i’ve taken the apex of this left hander below…I say taken the apex but i mean, when the bush on the left smashes against my left side…It sounded much too clean before and i don’t want you thinking that this is easy! 🤣
I start counting my steps until i hit 90 then i veer off to the left. I’ve only tried this this morning and it worked (i didn’t hit any trees). On Saturday i counted 100 steps and 80 steps but they were too far and too soon.
The sun this morning was totally blinding (pun intended) and i really hoped that 90 steps would be spot on…So i just went for it and didn’t hit anything! 💪🏼 I’m not sure if the image above is as confusing for you as it is for me, but i tried to take a photo of the left hand corner that veers off?!
I’ll try my calculation out again tomorrow morning to see if it was just a fluke, lol…But if it works, this could be a game changer for e in my marathon training. 💪🏼 😀
Oh…I havn’t named these corners yet either, so you’ll have to wait before i bore you to death (even more) with my many names…And this trail has lots and lots of corners, chicanes and straights! 🤣
