Yeah, you are correct. Back home now. Wheels fell off badly, not the PF, which actually felt improved after Honister, not the atrocious weather, they fell off during the little initial ascent onto the cliff top at ST. Bees. They felt unusually tired for the three days prior to starting but I couldn't figure out why and thought they would be ok once I got going. Not to be, by the time I stopped they had been so painful (Quads) for a long, long way that I knew I would do some serious damage of I carried on.
Blog or detailed report to follow.

Glad your home Slogger, watched you all the way once Mick showed me your link, was quite worried after you slowed down to a crawl when you came down to Haweswater, but it was better then watching the Grandprix! especially when you legged it down into Patterdale !! Could see you moving on screen ! Well done fella and a damn good try !!

Thanks for all comments, I hope it kept you amused for a short while.
Mick, yeah first hill for a while, although my legs were not even happy walking to the B&B from the train station. I am suspecting the problem may have been due to wearing my new orthotics in my work shoes the week before. I don't think they are right. Left (good foot) foot I have no problem with feel uncomfortable with them as the arch support feels excessive, and the right one (PF foot) is also built up for arch support which makes my already Supinating foot, supinate even more placing even more pressure on the outer edge. Anyway that's all I can put it down to at the moment. On a positive note, when Ive recovered in about 4 - 6 weeks time I'll probably be flying!

Commiserations Dave. Was interesting following your 'Spot' progress. Hard luck. Can imagine the frustration of being 'hobbled' by the bod when the mind is wanting to go for it!

Cheers George, my head was saying stop early on, but my heart wouldn't have it. Eventually my head won.
It all adds to the experience.

as the PF improved enroute you might want to rethink the orthotics Dave..? Doing more harm than good perhaps?

Strange thing this PF, I'm getting the feeling that it is not going to go away altogether and will be something I will just have to manage.
I have a heel varus which Ive known about for years and a slight forefoot valgus. In other words my foot has slightly tilted over to the outside. Thats in the non weight baring position. As soon as I stand, all investigation, tests, gait tests etc are normal. So why do they insist on orthotics, I just don't get it, but after all the reading and research that Ive done, it seems to me that most of the foot/orthopedic people are simply following whats always been thought. The truth is not very much is known about the condition, like many other things.
I'm going to go back to trying Orange Superfeet which will give my foot arch some support without trying to bend my foot this way and that way.
If things go well, I will be making another foray late September. I don't know where yet, but if I ever do attempt a fast C2C again it will be E - W.
Come on Mick -you know you want to..................when?
Dave.
