I really didn't know how far I'd get on today's walk and to be honest I expected to have to turn back after half an hour or so. I've been hobbling about all week with a painful Achilles Tendon; hence the lower level route. All I can put it down to was having to run up the street the previous Saturday to get out of the rain.
As it turned out, it wasn't too painful once I got going. Although I'm still glad I kept off the fells. Limping back along here would have been bad enough, but struggling to get off the fells wasn't something I relished the thought of.
