Fantastic, great Blog, really enjoyed it, well done. You did especially well to get back on itinerary from Grasmere to Shap.
I think that is where my feet really started to play up.
Currently doing the Angles way (Suffolk/Norfolk boarders), no hills... well a couple of hillocks, I live right on the route and decided to get those boots out and do a section of it most weeks.
