The Lakes Day Five

The day did not start so well with hubby getting a flare up of his gout, something WE suffer from every once in a while. Believe me when I say it’s painful for us both! This was not helped by the meds not making the journey with us from Devon.

We carried on with the planned walk around Aira Force, waterfalls just down the road from where we are staying. We contemplated tying our good legs together and proceeding like a three legged race as we must have looked a right pair with our limps!

The Falls were lovely helped by the fact we were there before 9 am and everyone else was still in bed, I would imagine it is not so nice when it’s busy

Our Pod neighbours had recommended Grasmere so this was our next port of call. It was very nice. Oh and the Gingerbread was amazing and I don’t even like the stuff!

After lunch in a cafe on Ullswater we continued over to the other side. The sun even came out. The plan was to walk up Hallin Fell, I executed this on my own leaving the invalid in the car.

The views were stunning

The weather less so. The rain blew in and I got drenched. We returned to the Pod and I was thrilled the sun came out for its longest appearance yet.

Last night it poured ALL night and I am surprised the Pod has not floated down the valley!

Today we will pack up and head to Ross on Wye to spend the night in a HOTEL! Oh my can’t wait!

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!
