It was a good opportunity to test out my new shoes- Innov-8 Terraclaw 250s. I made the switch after having the same structural issue repeating over and over again with each set of Speedcross. So far so good anyway, they’re a lot roomier and have a really good grip on wet rock.
A grassy climb brought us up Withered Howe where we stopped for some scran and a rest. I’ve been enjoying napping outside in the recent good weather, it was just a little too cold today…
I was working hard to stay in the moment today, sometimes it feels like the scenery just passes behind me while I go through the motions, like how they used to film against moving backdrops in old films. I was feeling really tired after a busy week and was a little wrapped up in my thoughts. Ed asked me what I was counting, I didn’t even realise I was, I was counting down on my fingers how many lessons I had left to teach before the holidays.
We climbed up a grassy ascent to Kentmere Pike and over Brown Howe to Harter Fell.
