There is nothing wrong with being blistered on the first few days of the Pennine Way, it has been like this since all the stone slabs were put down.

The first year I walked it I did Edale to Stanedge in one go. Even though I set off in the dark and completed the day in the dark there was not one blister to be seen.

Since then I accept that I will end either of these days with collateral damage.....
