Out on the Pennine Way again last week end, more learnt, more to learn….
Nicola and I were out yesterday on a Mountain Skills day out, getting Nicola's head ready for Winter Mountaineering. I was testing out some new kit I've been sent from Montane for the Spine Race.
Nav4 Adventure asked me to cover a day last week with Imran for a One to One Navigation training day

Footworks, an Edinburgh Running Shop, hosts the 2nd Scottish Barefoot Running Conference at the park across the road from the Footworks Store
Running a checkpoint and trying to compete the following day is a tall order, I've tried for the last 2 years, this year I got my chance at the 50 and blew it....
I learnt to ski in the Lakes, we had a rope tow up Kirkstone Pass, one of the first, if not the first. From the age of 6 I have played on skis and lots of it in the Lakes
Martindale is a great valley, cut off from the rest of the Lakes by the col between Hallin Fell and Steel Knotts, its like a hidden valley. Granted everyone knows about it and its most likely a busy little place in summer, but in mid February, you can go there and forget about the rest of the world for a while and most likely see nobody.
So the day before I ran barefoot on the beach, it chewed my feet up, what a suprise, but it was good, real good. But were my feet OK to run 18 miles down the Pennine Way.
