Day 3

So despite my flu, I decided to carry on today. Hanret first suggested that I maybe try and just do short distances until I get better. Good idea! I already started getting itchy feet yesterday!

So today was the stretch between Malmesbury and Moorreesburg. Not far. Only 36Km...but was tough! Partly because I'm ill and partly because of all the gear I'm carrying! The heavy load is fabulous on the downhills, but drags you to snail's pace on the uphills!!

The idea is to push to Piketberg tomorrow and just take it easy. At least I'm making progress.

Between my 2 best friends Elise and Hanret, they're making sure I have a place to stay every night and taking care of admin. Thank you!

The last time I did this route it was right in the middle of summer. Now it's cold and windy! And I know exactly what the road ahead looks like! It doesn't get any easier. I am convinced, however, that I will find my rhythm on the road again soon!

Don't worry too much about the weight of the gear - you'll get used to it :) As you go work out what you are carrying and don't need so you can mail it home or pass it on.
Good luck out there!
