I've been hard at work making maps and putting the finishing touches to my South Wales Traverse schedule. The maps, broken down into the six stages, are available on-line for anyone who is interested, links at the end. I have also published my schedule on-line. Stand back and admire the level of detail - no, I'm not that anal, the spreadsheet was created by others and I've just updated it with my pacings. Isn't it just a thing of beauty though...
After all that sitting down, hunched over the computer keyboard I headed out into the garden to cut the grass. Very nearly left that particular chore too late as the rain started just as I was finishing up. So it was back inside double quick - which is a damn shame as I was ready to chill on the decking. Finished off with an hour on the bike and some ab work before hitting the sofa...
So here are my traverse stage maps:-
There are a few deviations from conventional wisdom regarding the route with the main, and possibly controversial, difference being my alternative route over to the A40, missing out the Glen Usk Estate.
