The Lakes Day 2

This morning we woke on the floor. Granted as we were sleeping on a blow up bed this was not much difference than when we retired the night before, except for the fact that the air bed had a slow leak and from 2am we were practically on the hard floor!

We started the day off with a drive along Ullswater

Then Derwentwater

Before arriving at Buttermere for our walk around it. The car park in the village is £9 for the day, which is obviously why it is also the location of the Defibrillator! Needless to say we found an alternative parking venue! The walk around the lake was lovely

And we rewarded ourselves with a pub lunch at the end. The weather was and continues to be very lake districty -eg DAMP, I am trying to not let it get to me, but a little annoyed as the weather has been so lovely this year-till now! I do keep saying it could be worse and at least it’s not cold but the photos would be incredible if a tad brighter!

After Buttermere we headed to Ennerdale a quieter venue for a brief 2 mile walk,

We have secured a new blow up mattress so am hoping for an amazing sleep as we are a little tired from today’s exertions!

About shazruns

I have been running since 2004 when I decided to do the Race for Life, as a close friend was terminally ill with cancer. Following that I did a couple of 10km at Leeds castle and Sandringham. Then in 2005 ran my first London marathon, then another in 2007 in blistering temperatures. I have entered the London marathon every year since but have been rejected, am now find maintaining my fitness & motivation hard, so when the email came through about Janathon I thought why not! Am hoping this helps with fitness, motivation and weight loss!! Wish me luck!
