The Lakes Day Three

This morning the cloud was down, in fact we could not see the lake when we were eating breakfast. Out mood soon matched this bit we decided like true Brits to carry on regardless!

Once Facebook was aware we were in the Lakes the recommendations rolled in, top of the list was a walk up Catbells, so that’s where we headed this morning. Having done my research I was aware it was a popular walk with not very much parking, fortunately for us we got there in time to grab the last spot. Now the sign post told us it was 1 mile to Catbells -IT LIED! In fact the sign should have read 1.5 vertical miles to Catbells with mountaineering required! But my the views were worth it!

It was very much a scramble at the end to get to the top. The sun even made an appearance a couple of times in celebration of our conquest.

Hubby declared there would be no afternoon walk, instead we wandered around Keswick before retiring to the Pod for a kip!

Tomorrow Beatrix Potters House #excitedshaz!

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!
