LWM thanks for the updates,

.. thanks - thought I was talking to myself - (usually am mind...)
no tweet from Dave today - could get one in morning yet though...
it may be the heel blisters giving him trouble...
Shinsplints - do you know something we don't? Personal texts maybe?
With bad feet he could well have got to Lord Stones tonight...
It's down to being able to dig that bit deeper - that which eluded me at Grisedale Tarn with just 40m to go... You almost feel you could piss on the finish but the will seems to have drained away...
cheers
mick

LWM, No personal texts mick. just from your previous message from slogger's feet playing up.
Quite fancy having a go at the 5 day attempt myself.
Already bought some new trail/running shoes

shoes.http://www.wiggle.co.uk/p/run/8/Nike_Zoom_Red_Rocks_II_Shoes/5360051359/?referid=frogoog&source=googleps

Do you reckon these will stand up to the punishment mick. They are getting great reviews with people buying them for trail walking instead of running.

LWM, thanks for keeping us posted. We are all rooting for him. I can just feel those sore feet and know how hard that must be for him. Shouldn't there be a signal at Clay Bank Top?

I'm following you on here and Dave on Twitter; thanks for putting the updates on, it's good to know that he has the moral support of so many, we are all rooting for him. I hope his feet don't give him too much trouble, he has got so far.
