Day thirteen - Spanning the Divide
Well, I pushed it to the limit yesterday but was pleased that I could walk OK this morning. Things went reasonably well until I got to the top of the range but they fell apart on the way down. By the time I got to the bottom and had been up and down two more hills the pain in my legs was about 7.5 on the ten scale.
There had been some thought that I might paddle the first bit of the Yarra in the afternoon but with my right leg starting to spasm we reckoned it would not be a good idea.
There was a mix up with well wishers at Yarra Glen who had arranged a sendoff at 9.00am but we could not guarantee the time and I wanted to get cracking before that as we need to get 50km per day done and don’t know what the river is like.
