Grouse Grind:
Today I played with the Grouse Grind. Some of you may remember I boasted I'd do it 6 times. In reply to that boast I now say "oh shit no".

I only did it once, and that was enough for the day. It took me 47 minutes 28 seconds, but a mate tells me he did it in 45, I am already considering going back tomorrow.

So what is it? Basically it's the side of a mountain, with steps made from rocks, roots and planks of wood. The sign saying I was 1/4 of the way there was devastating, I could have sworn I was at least 2/3 of the way up... then it got steeper.

PA010009

I averaged a heart rate of 175bpm for my ascent.

D: 2.9km
A: 765m
