Bluebells brightening up an otherwise thoroughly dull evening
And as the excitement for this years LAMM grows, to remove any last excuses,I have got some new running shoes. Another pair of Inov-8’s to replace my rapidly shredded previous pair, which seemed to have soles that self destructed on anything other than smooth fell grasslands. I wasn’t expecting much when I returned my rather sorry looking (and damp) shoes back to Pete Blands, but to their credit have taken them in, so I await Inov-8’s response with interest.
Shiny new Mudclaw 270’s!
As I dont have time to be without any fell shoes and seeing as the new Mudclaw 270’s have been revamped including a much improved lacing system and have, i am promised (!) a more durable sole unit, it was straight out onto the fells this evening, despite the appalling weather, with a brand new pair. First impressions are that they are more comfortable and once the greyish white tinge has faded will not look quite so chav-ish!
Running on the flanks of Potter Fell
So this evening it was off through the persistent rain and gusty winds off around on my familiar circuit of Potter Tarn – Gurnal Dubs and Potter Fell. The legs were feeling a little lethargic after Sundays outing but on the whole not too bad and only the slightest, faintest hint of any hang-over from my knee injury.
The Streams are running well again
Lets just hope there’s a credit on its way from Inov-8 and I can needlessly buy that new (and 200 grams lighter) Elite Pro 20 rucksack I have been pondering over…………
