Jonkers Eastern Loop Trail Run

Our trail grading: ORANGE 5B
Distance: 12km
Extremeness: Tough climb & technical single track
Location: Jonkershoek, Stellenbosch, South Africa
Joggers: Deryck Nel & me

On Friday morning I found out that I was not as tough as I thought. After some relatively strenuous exercise the previous two days, I got up early to do a 12km Jonkers loop with Deryck. We started well, but after 2.5km I lost most of my sight - my blood sugar dropped, etc. I had to stop and wait for 5min and then decided to just take it very easy. We completed an enjoyable run and I suppose if it does not kill you it only makes you stronger. :)
